On June 29, 2024, at about 1400hrs, a concerned citizen informed police authorities about a young girl who was attempting to commit suicide by ingesting a harmful chemical known as Sniper. Promptly responding to the tip-off, officers were dispatched to the scene where the girl was located and prevented from causing herself harm.

Upon rescue, the lady, whose identity remains confidential, confessed that she had been driven to the brink of suicide due to severe emotional distress.
