Student hangs self

M Gayathri (22) reportedly hanged herself from the ceiling fan using a veil between 1.30 pm and 6 pm when her parents and brother were away. Police were informed late in the evening. No death note was found.

Gayathri’s family and teachers were more than shocked at her suicide since she was “a brilliant student and did not appear to have any issues at all.”

Gayathri, born to Muniswamy Reddy and Manjula, was a student of 7th Semester BE (Computer Science) at the Shirdi Sai Engineering College, Anekal.

Although her family told the police that she probably suffered from stomach ache, the reason for her extreme step is not known.

The college Principal, T V Govindaraju, described Gayathri as a “very decent and studious girl.” “She did not have any arrears (subject backlogs). We were stunned to know that she ended her life,” Govindaraju told Deccan Herald.

B Shadaksharappa, Head, Department of Computer Science, said the last time Gayathri probably attended the classes was on November 24. “She had come for the practical examination,” he said.

She scored well in the internal assessment and was preparing for semester examinations set to commence on December 7.

“On an average, she scored 23 marks out of 25 in all the six subjects,” he added. Shadaksharappa is certain that Gayathri ended her life only for unknown personal reasons.
Reddy is a plumber and Manjula works at a garment factory. Gayathri’s brother Naveen is employed. The body was handed over to the relatives after a post-mortem. Parappana Agrahara police have booked a case of unnatural death.
