CHENNAI: A 19-year-old girl was found dead on the flight of stairs of her college on Vepery High Road on Friday. Police suspect, she must have slipped and fallen while hurrying to class.

The girl was identified as Roshini Sharma. She was pursuing her third year BCom in a private college on Vepery High Road. Her parents Sunil Sharma and Sheena Sharma run a pharmacy at Elephant Gate, said the police.

“The college reopened on Friday after 10 days. While the classes start at 8 am, Roshini was late. At around 8.30 am she had informed her friends that she was arriving at the class on the fourth floor,” said a senior police officer.
