BANGALORE: A 28-year-old IV semester law student allegedly attempted to end her life by consuming poison at Bangalore University Registrar (Evaluation) T R Subramanya’s chamber on the Central College campus on Saturday evening. The victim, identified as Ashalatha, was allegedly not allowed to appear for examinations.
Ashalatha is studying at Vidyodaya Law College in Tumkur. According to sources, the incident took place at about 4.30 pm when she had gone to meet the Registrar to take permission to appear for examinations. However, she allegedly tried to end her life since she was denied permission, sources said.
She was shifted to Bowring Hospital by the guards. She is currently undergoing treatment in Gayatri hospital in Vijayanagar. According to doctors, her condition is critical.
Speaking to Express, her husband B Govindraj, an interior decorator, “I had dropped her at the Central College around 4 pm. She went to meet the Registrar and I got a call from the university staff about the incident at 6 pm. She is from a poor family and aims to complete graduation and was not allowed to write exams several times. She was not permitted last year also,” he explained.
Registrar Subramanya said, “God promise, she did not visit my chamber, and I had no discussions with her. If she had met me, I would have allowed her to take the exam. I suggested that she be shifted to a hospital after the incident.” ACP Sunil Kumar said Ulsoor Gate police are investigating the case.
