The victim’s mother’s friend posted on her Facebook profile that the girl’s mother left his husband after three years of failed marriage and raised her daughter alone until six months ago.
The girl’s father demanded to raise his daughter himself and the victim was moved to her father’s home where she lived with her father and her step mother, who reportedly abused her regularly.

The police urged the public to report about possible domestic violence cases to hotline 107 without hesitation as people’s lives may be at risk, following the girl’s death. The hotline receives reports 24 hours every day and gives advices and direct people of what they should do against domestic violence.
Female members of Parliament offered their condolences for the victim’s close relatives and promised, “We will try our best for a bright and safe future for women and children who are falling victims to domestic violence and we will never seize our efforts to eradicate the issue in Mongolia.”
A group of Ulaanbaatar residents have joined their voices against domestic violence following the widely reported death of the young girl. They announced to hold a peaceful demonstration to call on the public to act against domestic violence and offer their condolences to the victim.
