According to a senior district police officer, the teen, a resident of Sonarpur's Bayedepara area, streamed the entire incident on Facebook Live with another person on the other side reportedly her boyfriend.
Her behaviour changed drastically after she returned home on Saturday evening after meeting her alleged boyfriend, who had called her over the phone, the officer said.
