Srinagar: A teenage girl ended her life by jumping into the River Jehlum from the Amira Kadal bridge here.
Reports said that passers-by were taken aback when the 19- year old girl hailing from south Kashmir’s Pampore town jumped into the river . A number of people including some street vendors tried their best to rescue the girl but in vain.
Efforts were on to trace the girl’s body when reports last came.
A local news agency quoted the girl’s father as saying that she was “depressed after college authorities recently did not allow her to appear in examination.”
