VIJAYAWADA: An Intermediate first-year student was found hanging from the ceiling of her house in K L Nagar under suspicious circumstances on Tuesday. Rayapareddy Anitha was a student of Gandhi Mahila College in Vijayawada.
A suicide note found near the body said she had resorted to the extreme step unable to bear the severe humiliation meted out to her by eve teasers and sought for them to be punished. Her father, a sugarcane juice vendor, said she could have ended her life due to eve-teasers and wanted strong action against them. He, however, admitted that he did not know who the eve-teasers were. He did not name anyone as responsible for his daughter’s death. Anitha’s mother works for a catering service.
Police sources said there was something fishy about the suicide and felt she may have been in a relationship with someone. They suspect that her parents may have opposed it. The girl does not use a mobile phone and travels to college in an autorickshaw. Sources in the college revealed the girl was in love with a boy and felt that this could have been the chief cause of her action.
