Girl commits suicide after Brazil’s loss




A 15-YEAR-OLD girl, whose father reportedly works in Bahrain, has committed suicide following the defeat of Brazil on Tuesday.

Pragya Thapa hanged herself on Wednesday in Nepal after learning that her favourite team had lost 7-1 to Germany in the Fifa World Cup semi-finals.

Nepalese police said the 10th grade student at Siddhartha Memorial School died at around 9am on Wednesday.

“She must have killed herself after being unable to come to terms with the defeat of her favourite team Brazil,” Sunsari district police deputy superintendent Sudeep Raj Bhandari told Nepalese online publication Republica.


“Having no one with whom she could share her disappointment, she chose to end her life.”

Pragya’s mother, Kalpana, said she never imagined that her daughter would take such a drastic step, despite Pragya saying she would kill herself if Brazil lost.

“She was disappointed when she heard the news about Brazil’s defeat,” Ms Thapa said. “After mumbling for a while, she went to her room. “After a while, I went to her room just to check on her. “She had already hanged herself to death.”
