NERUL: A girl jumped off a lo­cal train on Fri­day and died while un­der­go­ing treat­ment. A sui­cide note found on her re­vealed that she had com­mit­ted sui­cide as she could not ful­fil the ex­pec­ta­tions of her par­ents with re­spect to her ed­u­ca­tion.

The girl has been iden­ti­fied as Ash­wini Karkhile, 19, a res­i­dent of Sec­tor 1 in Nerul.

A stu­dent of BSC, she had left home to go for classes. While trav­el­ling in Be­la­pur- Vashi train, she jumped off when the train crossed the Ra­jiv Gandhi fly­over. She was rushed to a hos­pi­tal. The po­lice found her bag near the rail­way track. She had lost her legs and was shifted to NMMC Hos­pi­tal in Vashi. She suc­cumbed to her in­juries.

Vashi rail­way po­lice has reg­is­tered a case of sui­cide. From the plas­tic bag re­cov­ered from the spot where she had jumped, po­lice found a note writ­ten by her.

Se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Vashi rail­way po­lice sta­tion, Nitin Bobde said, “Ash­wini had writ­ten the let­ter to her mother. Fi­nan­cial prob­lems and ex­pec­ta­tions of the fam­ily from her had dis­turbed her.”
