The teenager was the survivor in a Pocso case registered nearly two years ago, in which the trial is progressing.
“We have recovered some voice notes and messages from the victim’s phone suggesting suicide. The belt found around her neck had some elasticity and it is a possibility that she wound it around her neck on her own. However, we are awaiting an autopsy report to confirm this possibility,” said a senior officer with Kattappana police.
