Kolkata schoolgirl left chilling note describing final moments
KOLKATA: "Give me a nice funeral. A NAICE one," Krittika Paul had written in the suicide note found next to her in the school washroom where she killed herself on Friday. Respecting her last wishes, her family, relatives and friends gave the 14-year-old an emotional send-off at a crematorium in Baruipur on Saturday evening.
A few family members and very close friends of the family accompanied Krittika’s distraught father to the crematorium in Kirtankhola in Baruipur on the southern fringes of the city at 3.30pm.
"We wanted to keep her last rites a very private affair, and so the choice of this crematorium. The Pauls' ancestral house is in Baruipur. Krittika's maternal uncle also lives here," said a close family friend. "We all have very fond memories of Krittika. I can’t believe she is no more. The reality is yet to sink in. We had high hopes she would do well in life as she was both intelligent and compassionate,” said a family member.
Earlier in the afternoon, Krittika’s body was handed over to the family at SSKM hospital after post mortem. The initial report confirmed her injuries were ante mortem (before death) and death may have been caused due to lack of oxygen. "She had wrapped her face with a polythene bag and tucked its edges inside her shirt, possibly to suffocate herself. There were multiple slash injuries on her wrist but those were unsure cuts and non-lethal in nature," a police officer said.
But what shook even the most hardened of police officers was her three-page suicide note in which she graphically described her suffering leading to her death. Written in a hand that increasingly became unsteady as she bled and suffocated, she wrote about the pain as blood dripped off her wrists and how breathing was getting difficult due to lack of oxygen. Police believe she wrote this page in the washroom while the first two in steady hand were written earlier.
In the first two pages, written in lucid English without a scratch mark, Krittika wrote that she had spent several sleepless days and would find sleep at last. She also mentioned that she had a death wish since she was in Class I
Her mobile, laptop may carry evidence: Cops

I am afraid this girl was suffering from depression. This disease is spreading - more amongst females than males. Please be friendly with such people so that they will see hope and not do such thing.

It was really unnecessary to bring gender into discussion, globally, men suicides outnumber female suicide by a margin

People who are depressed can not think themselves what to do?For them life becomes burden.The people around them fail to understand this and instead of listening and supporting them laugh at them.That is the root cause of such situation.

Suicide by wrapping plastic bag around neck to suffocate self also sounds suspicious. Police should conduct some investigation before shutting the case as pure suicide case.

Please don't blame the parents without knowing the facts. Sometimes it is a case of undiagnosed clinical depression.
Let's not be judgemental here.
Condolences to her near and dear ones.

A child who can emote articulate and write with such sense cannot be utterly depressed. There is a huge chance of foul play in this case and should be thoroughly investigated.

Don't force children to study. If they want to leave the studies and schools, they should be allowed to leave. There are lakhs of many other options for livelihood like agricultural, skill training, business and other professions. Life is important. it must be saved and protected.

Parents are undoubtedly responsible. She was not loved or given enough attention. Why make babies if u cannot be responsible?

It''s not entirely the parents'' fault. It''s just another ignorant society who fails to acknowledge depression as a serious illness. :"")

People who never had Depression would never understand what a terrible illness it is. It''s one of the most painful things in this world and I would not even want my enemy to suffer this. Feel sad for the girl but also a bit content that she is free from all the pain now.
