A 14-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide by jumping into the well after her father threatened to kill her. The deceased is Haritha, a Class IX student of Kolathur Government High School, Kasargod.

On Thursday, Haridas, father of Haritha came home drunk and picked up a quarrel with family members. The girl then complained that she is not able to study because of these constant fights.

Neighbours said that Haridas used to come home drunk every day and pick up a fight with the family.
