A 17-year-old first year intermediate student committed suicide by hanging at her classroom here on Wednesday. The incident took place in a corporate college premise located at Bhagyanagar colony in KPHB.
According to police, B Soujanya, a native of Nizamabad district, left a suicide note, in which she mentioned that she took the extreme step unable to bear parental pressure to do well in academics. She said she did not have any interest in the same, and mentioned that no one was responsible for her death.
“Around 4.30 am, Soujanya, who was staying at the college hostel, came to her classroom located on second floor of the building and committed suicide by hanging herself with her chunni,” KPHB police said.
When all the students came to the class for morning study hours at around 5 am, they noticed Soujanya’s body and informed the college management. The management then alerted the police, who found a suicide note and recovered the body. Police said the victim’s father Srinivas, a farmer, had paid a huge amount for Soujanya’s education.
She however was disinterested due to pressure from her teachers. Though she brought the issue to her parent’s notice, they further mounted pressure on her, asking her to finish the course.
