Nanditha family to go to court over CID report

Members of Nanditha’s family have decided to go to court against the interim report submitted by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on the mysterious death of the 14-year-old girl from Thirthahalli in Shivamogga district on October 31.

The CID report submitted to the State government stated that Nanditha committed suicide as she was unable to cope with the English medium of education.

Speaking to Deccan Herald over the phone, T G Krishnamurthy, the father of the girl, said, “We are not at all satisfied with the report. So, we have decided to question the report in the court. We will submit a memorandum to the chief minister and the governor urging them to order a CBI probe into the case,” he said.

“I had been to Bengaluru last month to meet the governor and urge him to direct the government to order a CBI probe into the case. But he was not available. I will meet him soon. I had shared all the information with the CID probe team. But the investigating officers have ignored it. Politicians and doctors are changing the direction of the probe,” Krishnamurthy said.

Referring to the apparent problem Nanditha had with English medium of instruction at school, as claimed by the CID, Krishnamurthy said, “It was she who decided to go to English medium school and there was no parental pressure on her. In fact, she told me she might find it difficult in the beginning, but would be able to perform well later. So, English medium can’t be the reason for her to take the extreme step.”
