BAREILLY: Unable to bear the trauma of carrying on with the rest of her life without her uterus and a kidney after discovering she did not have them through an ultrasound test, a 17-year-old girl from the city burnt herself to death.
The teenager, a Class 11 student and resident of Subhash Nagar locality here, had taken ill a few months ago. Her parents took her to a doctor who advised her to get an ultrasound test conducted. After receiving the report, her family and the girl came to know that she did not have a second kidney and a uterus. From then onwards, according to her family, she went into a depression even as her parents desperately tried to alleviate her pain and fears by giving her much-needed emotional support. They also took her for treatment to some other doctors, but the teenager continued to be depressed.
