Sexually harassed law student ends life in MP

A 22-year-old law student in  Rewa University, who was allegedly being sodomised by a senior since 2010, has committed suicide, varsity officials said today.

Ajay Padhole, a final year LLB student, yesterday hanged himself from the ceiling of Chandrasekhar hostel located close to the university, they said.

He had complained to the police about being sexually harassed by Ashutosh Dwivedi, a senior who hailed from Rewa district, since the last two years, the officials said.
Padhole, a native of Betul district, had also complained to various authorities about his plight but no action was taken to help him, they said.

Three days back, Padhole submitted a complaint to the police in which he said that if the situation did not improve, he may be compelled to take his own life, they said.

Local police were tight-lipped about the incident and refused to share any information about the case.
