BENGALURU: The 21-year-old engineering student who was battling for life in a hospital after her boyfriend and ex-boyfriend assaulted her, succumbed to injuries early on Friday morning. Monica, of Chikkabanavara and a third-year BE (Architecture) student, was assaulted on June 7.

Monica had been in a relationship with Rahul for the past four months and had gone to his house on June 7. “She had been in a relationship with Babith for almost four years but they broke up and she stopped taking his calls. When Babith learned that she was in Rahul’s house that day, he went there.
There was a heated argument during which Rahul assaulted her. She then went with Babith to his house where he hit her with a helmet on the head. His mother and sister were present in the house when the incident took place,”
