Chided by father, girl ends life

Renuka, 20, a resident of Saraswathipura and a student of KLE Law College in Rajajinagar, hanged herself to death on Sunday night allegedly after her parents reprimanded her for having an affair with a boy.

Renuka used to attend tuition classes in Malleswaram when she was in second year PUC. There she met a boy and fell in love with him.  Her father, Venkataram, a government employee, scolded her on Sunday night for continuing her friendship with the boy, and took away her cellphone.

An upset Renuka went into her room and hanged herself. The parents grew suspicious when she did not open the door. They broke open the door and were shocked to see Renuka hanging from a ceiling fan.

In a death note, the victim has stated: “I was in love with a boy for the past few years. My father opposed our love affair. He took the opposite stand in all my aspirations. Hence, I am committing suicide.”

The victim also stated that she loved her father and he loved her too. In another incident, a 14 year-old student of a private school in Jnanabharathi police limits, R Chaitra, hanged herself from a ceiling fan in her room. She was studying in Class VIII.
