MUMBAI: A 19-year-old girl from Andheri (West) died of a suspected cardiac arrest after consuming alcohol with her friends at Juhu beach on Thursday. The police ruled out foul play, sexual assault and drug abuse, but will ascertain the cause of death after her chemi- cal analysis report is released by the Directorate of Forensic Science Laboratory at Kalina.
