Kakashi Hatake killed Rin Nohara, his former teammate and lover, during a mission that took place when they were young ninjas.
When they were young Ninja, Rin Nohara and Kakashi Hatake were originally teammates and lovers. But on one mission, Kakashi killed Rin. The reason for this action was not clear at first, but later in the series Naruto revealed that It was really an accident.
Dying at Kakashi’s hand was Rin’s decision
While on a mission, Rin is kidnapped and has an dynamite card containing chakra implanted in her body by enemy ninjas from the Mist Village. The plan is to bring Rin back to Konoha with the card, which will explode upon arrival and kill the Konoha leaders.
As Kakashi and his team caught up with Rin and his captors, Kakashi was forced to fight Rin, who was willing to risk his life to protect the village. During the fierce battle, Kakashi accidentally used his Chidori move to stab Rin, killing her instantly.
Simply put, Kakashi never wanted to kill Rin, but wanted to protect her according to his divine promise. Dying at the hands of Kakashi was Rin’s decision.
Rin decided long ago to sacrifice herself for the sake of the village. Moreover, he died at the hands of the only person he had feelings for. The tragic scene leading to a sacrifice that Naruto fans will never forget.
In that moment, Kakashi staggered and passed out shortly after. The boy, who never showed any real emotions, was found in tears after her death.
