Girl kills self over death of stray dog she used to pet | India News – Times of India

MEERUT: A 19-year-old girl, who had cleared NEET this year and was supposed to start counselling shortly at a college in Mumbai, jumped to her death from a water tank after one of the street dogs she fed regularly was injured in an accident and died.
The neighbours of Gauri Tyagi said she was fond of pets and always fed strays. On Thursday, she went for a walk and found that the dog had been hit by a vehicle. She brought it home and tried to save it, but the animal died.
Distraught, Gauri refused to have dinner that evening. The next day, she climbed a water tank, 300m from her house, and jumped off. She succumbed to her injuries at a hospital and her family cremated her soon after.
A police officer told TOI on Saturday, “Gauri found a wounded stray on Thursday and brought it home. She also spoke to a vet over the phone. But the dog was in severe pain and died in front of her. Her grandmother and others consoled her.”
The cop further said, “The next day at around 9.45am, Gauri fed the other strays and left home. A few local residents later found her lying in a pool of blood next to an overhead water tank.” Daurala circle officer, Abhishek Patel, said that a police team went to the site, but the girl’s family told them that they don’t want to take the case forward.
