Mumbai: A minor girl has allegedly committed suicide in her attempt of astral travelling in Bhoiwada area of Mumbai’s Parel, according to Zee News sources.

15-year-old Shravanani’s family told the police that she was continuously watching videos related to astral travelling on YouTube for the past few days.

Astral travelling, or astral projection, refers to a wilful out-of-body experience, during which one’s soul separates from the physical body and traverses the astral plane with intention. People often experience this state during illness or when involved in a near death experience.

While it is said that it is possible to practice astral projection at will, however, no such incidence has been officially reported till date.
