Quote:Police in Nepal are investigating the death of a 15-year-old girl who was banished to a poorly-ventilated shed because she was menstruating.
They say the girl suffocated after lighting a fire to keep warm.
Under an ancient Hindu practice, called chhaupadi, women who have their periods or who have just given birth are seen as impure.
