DUMKA: 17-year-old, BA First Year student, Khushbu Kumari hanged herself at her Gaushala Road residence on Friday as she felt embarrassed to go out in the field to relieve herself and was unable to convince her parents to build a toilet in their home.

“Khushbu insisted us to build toilet inside the house but we always use to say we could just build a boundary wall but not the entire toilet”, mother of the minor was quoted in a media report, adding that Khushbu used to often go to her grandmother’s house which was nearby to relieve herself.
The family lives in a pucca house with four rooms but having a toilet in the house was never considered as a priority for them as the father of the girl reportedly saved money for her wedding than considering it to spend on constructing toilet at home.
