A teen in India set herself ablaze after being chided by her mother about her excessive mobile usage.

The incident took place in the southern city of Hyderabad, Telangana Today reported. On Friday evening, the mother and the 16-year-old daughter had a heated argument over her mobile phone usage. A few hours later, the teen left her home.

When the parents woke up the following morning, they couldn’t find the daughter anywhere, and registered a missing person complaint.

The police checked the footage from the CCTV camera installed in front of her residence and found the girl left the home around 2 a.m. local time Saturday. They noticed the teen was carrying a container, which the officers believe contained fuel.

A while later, the police received a call saying a partially burnt body was found in a desolated area. They rushed to the spot and found a mobile ringing next to the body, which turned out to be the girl’s father trying to reach her.

The parents were called to the scene to identify the body, and it was confirmed it belonged to their missing daughter.

"The girl, who recently completed her 10th grade, left home Friday night without informing her parents, after which they launched a search for her. She went to a desolate place, poured kerosene over her body and set herself ablaze," a police officer said, local daily The Times of India reported.

"From the circumstances and the statements of the parents, it was found that the girl died by suicide and her parents also don’t suspect any foul play in the death," another officer told The New Indian Express.

Earlier this month, a minor boy killed himself after his parents refused to acknowledge his wedding. The minor got married to a 20-year-old woman, and when his parents did not approve of this, the couple decided to kill themselves by hanging. The woman escaped after her rope broke off. She informed the neighbors, who rushed to the residence and realized the boy had died. His age was not known.
