Class 12 girl jumps to death from college building in Shivamogga

Shivamogga, Dec 5 (IANS): A second-year Pre-University College (class 12) student allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the college building in Karnataka's Shivamogga district.

Eighteen-year-old Meghasri from Channapura village in Davanagere district, took the extreme step on the premises of Adichunchanagiri College of Sharavathi Nagar in Shivamogga.

According to the police, Meghasri had come to the college for her Biology exams.

During the exam, she sought permission to go to the washroom and then committed suicide. Upon learning about the incident, the parents of the deceased rushed to the college.

Meghasri's father Omkaraiah alleged the involvement of the college management, hostel warden, and lecturers in his daughter's death.

Omkaraiah said he had paid Rs 4.5 lakh fees but faced resistance from the college authorities when they tried to enter the premises.

After a strong protest from the family, they were eventually allowed inside.

Meghasri's parents argued with the Principal and Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) Suresh over their daughter's death.

Meghasri resided in the college hostel.

While the police suspect homesickness as a possible reason for her death, the parents have refused to accept this explanation.

    I read in newspapers that in between 2019 to 2022 ,around 35000 students died by suicide, I think Mobile or love may be the reason. This is my guess.

    Nobody knows what happens in these gated residential schools; foul play if any is easily suppressed by force due to high influence!
