Police officials said that the girl jumped before a train near Domoria bridge in Jalandhar, 150 km from Chandigarh, after she was clicked by some media persons in a car with a boy, when they were stopped by police following a minor collision with another car.
Police sources said the girl pleaded with police personnel and the media not to involve her in the matter and let her go but they did not listen to her. She even allegedly threatened that she would commit suicide if her photographs were taken.
When her pleas were not heeded, the girl went to the nearby railway tracks and jumped before a moving train. She died on the spot, police said.
