The family members of the 14-year-old girl, whose body was found on a railway track in Chamrawala area in Bijnor on Wednesday, blocked the Nagina-Bijnor road for the second day in protest, claiming that their daughter did not commit suicide, but was murdered. The deceased's female friend, who was found unconscious on the same spot, was arrested on Wednesday night. She, along with two unidentified persons, were booked under Section 302 and 364 of the IPC.

Police said that the deceased's kin again blocked the road on Thursday as her body was taken to her residence after postmortem in All Saray mohalla in Nagina. The situation got tense after which cops had to resort to a mild lathi-charge to disperse the mob. In response, the mob pelted stones at the police. However, nobody was injured.

The agitators, who have been demanding compensation for the affected family, later returned, but did not protest for long and eventually allowed traffic movement on the road.

In the evening, the deceased's body was buried.

According to ASP Dharamveer Singh, "We are investigating the matter. A case has been registered against the victim's friend and two unidentified persons. Police are questioning her, but she is afraid and is refusing to tell anything." Singh added that some people pelted stones at the police, but nobody was injured. Police have recorded the agitation and cases will be lodged against the agitators.
