Nepali girl commits suicide after Brazil's loss in the World Cup semifinals

Brazil fans dejected after their loss to Germany in the semifinals

Kathmandu, July 9 (IANS) A diehard 15-year-old fan of Brazil in Nepal committed suicide on Wednesday after the South American nation's humiliating defeat at the hands of Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup semifinal.

According to Nepal Police, Pragya Thapa, 15, from Sunsari district in east Nepal, hanged herself  after some of her friends teased her that her team had suffered a humiliating loss to Germany.

The disheartened Pragya, a 10th grader in a local school, hung herself when her mother and sister were delighted at Germany’s victory. Germany defeated Brazil 7-1 on its home soil to advance to the final.

"She (Pragya) was anxious to see Brazil in the final, but it went down to Germany. Some of her friends started teasing her for supporting Brazil. Later in the morning, she took an extreme measure by hanging herself in her own room," Sharad Thapa, a Nepal Police inspector, said after preliminary investigation.

Her father works in a Gulf country and her grandparents were looking after her. After a brief discussion with her friends about the World Cup game, she studied for a while in her room before committing suicide.
