According to a report in Hindustan Times, a 15-year-old girl died by suicide at her home in Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, after being 'depressed' over actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death on June 14.

Dependra Pathak, Director General of Police, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, told News18, "Yes, it's true that a girl aged 15 years old hanged herself after she went into depression over the actor's suicide. I would like to urge all the youngsters to look forward in life to achieve their goals in nation building rather than taking such extreme steps. I would also like to urge all the parents to speak to their children, if they notice any symptoms of depression in them."

The girl had reportedly been tracking news of Sushant's death and the aftermath, and had even written in her diary about the actor. She took the extreme step after being scolded by her grandfather, as per the media report.

According to another report in Entertainment Times, the family confirmed she was suffering from depression. The case is being investigated.
