A man had to carry his dead daughter on his shoulders across a river in Beed in Maharashtra on Friday as a bridge on it had been washed away in recent rains and a bullock cart arranged by police was unable to cross the waterbody.

The girl allegedly committed suicide in the morning in Bhojgaon in Gevrai taluka and the body had to be taken to a primary health centre for legal formalities, an official said.
