Kalyani(WB), Jul 5: A 12-year-old minor girl took a drastic step of committing suicide in order to donate organs to her father and brother who were in need of urgent replacement of eyes and kidney.

Mampy Sarkar was under profound depression seeing her father Mridul Sarkar, a daily labourer, suffer because of his decaying eyes and her brother Monojit ailing from a damaged kidney, police said. Monojit's other kidney was also getting weak, the doctor had diagnosed.

A death note was found after a day she ended up her life and was cremated on June 27. Tapas Tarafdar, the Pradhan of local Dhantal panchayat said, Mampy discussed with her sister Manika her intention to commit suicide along with her so that their organs be used to treat their father and brother. However, Manika dismissed the idea and went to school leaving Mampy to take the decision to commit suicide, police said.
