According to a report published in TOI, Neeru has decided to take 'samadhi (to give up her life) and she has been put under house arrest.
The shocking incident has been reported from Pinahat, a town 55 kms away from Agra.
According to locals, the minor has been observing maun vrat (fast of silence) from last eight years. They also said that at the age of six, Neeru kept a fast for rains and it rained!
Villagers have even built a temple after her instructions and a community festival is also celebrated in her name.
She has been surviving on liquids for a long time and has stopped taking food.
Thousands of villagers have gathered outside her house to offer prayers since Monday morning, the first day of Pitru Paksha Shradh.
Just like controversial godwoman Radhe Maa, the girl was also dressed in a red dress and had adorned heavy jewellery.
Meanwhile, to ensure her saftey, heavy police personnel has been deployed outside her house and her father, Hari Singh has been asked to take care of her safety.
A police official also said that an FIR will be filed against her father for promoting superstition.
Police is investigating whether her father used Neeru for earning money, in the name of calling her goddess.
