The police believe that the cousin, who came to the house in an inebriated condition, tried to force himself on the minor. When she resisted, he reportedly stabbed her around the neck with scissors. The girl, who bled profusely, succumbed to her injuries. The victim’s elder sister, also a minor, lodged an FIR with the local police on Sunday.
The police suspected the reason behind lodging of FIR against ‘unknown’ persons due to family pressure.
