CHENNAI: The High Court ordered second autopsy of T Monisha, one of the three college girls who allegedly committed suicide in Villupuram, began at 2 PM at the Kilpauk Medical College and is still continuing. The body reached Chennai under police protection at just before 2 PM from Villupuram.
The autopsy, for which the High Court of Madras gave the go ahead yesterday, is being done to determine if there was any foul play involved in the death of the girl. A team of several doctors headed by the Head of Department for Forensics Dr R Selvakumar is conducting the autopsy, while Dr P Sampath Kumar, HoD for Forensic Medicine at the Sri Ramachandra Medical University, is also present on the request of the parents of the deceased girl.
K Tamilarasan, father of Monisha, had gone to the High Court seeking a second autopsy stating he had suspicions about the circumstances of his daughter's death. He had also claimed that the first autopsy had been conducted without his consent and despite his objections. The court consequently ordered that the second autopsy be done at any of the government hospitals in Chennai and Tamilarasan chose KMC.
Meanwhile, Vasuki Subramanian, college correspondent of the SVS Naturopathy and Yoga College where the girls studied, surrendered at the Tambaram Court on Wednesday, while Subramanian’s driver Vengatesan, who was on the run following the alleged suicide of the three girl students of the college, surrendered at the Saidapet court in Chennai on the same day.
The three girl students of the college were found dead in a well near the college on Saturday evening after allegedly committing suicide in protest against the administration's practices. They had said in their suicide note that the administration had charged excess fees, had tortured them and laid the blame on Vasuki Subramanian for their death.
