Lovepreet Singh (20), the ex-boy friend of victim Raksha Sharma (20) had allegedly threatened to get the latter 'implicated' in a police case, investigations have revealed.
Raksha, a first year student of computer science and engineering at Mehar Chand Polytechnic College, committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan in her hostel room on Tuesday night.
In her suicide note, she alleged that that two former college seniors - Lovepreet Singh (20) and Deepak Saini (20), were harassing her and had posted obnoxious comments on her facebook wall to defame her publicly.
Though the police refused to share the investigation details, sources said that Lovepreet had sent threatening SMSs to Raksha to teach her a lesson after their break-up.
Lovepreet was the last caller to talk to Raksha on her mobile phone at around 5:15 pm on Tuesday before she committed suicide in the evening. The conversation lasted for 10 minutes.
In an SMS to Raksha, the accused said that he had submitted a complaint to the police station division number 1 against her.
"I have shown them (the police) your pictures and recordings. Besides, I gave details about items you owe to me including Rs 20,000, mobile phone and a memory card. If you don't believe me, you can ask Sunil about police complaint. Now you can't escape my wrath," Lovepreet's message read.
The police had earlier maintained that Lovepreet was pressurising her to pay back Rs 20,000 she had received during the happy days of their affair. Lovepreet had even contacted her Jammu-based orphanage and demanded his money back.
In another SMS, the accused threatened the victim that she would now realise the cost to be paid for his enmity.
"You are a sympathy seeker. You realise benefits by marketing your orphan status," another message said.
The Facebook page of Lovepreet has no record of any chat between the two after August 9.
Interestingly, the victim, in her suicide note, had mentioned that the accused had been threatening her of dire consequences for the past one week and had posted obnoxious comments on her facebook wall. Sources said that she shared an "intimate" relationship with Lovepreet for nearly five months before their break-up.
Though the police have been attempting to retrieve chat and wall posts data from Raksha's Facebook account, but success has eluded the police. Her facebook account from social networking site was inaccessible since Thursday morning.
"There is every possibility that someone has deleted conversations that took place between Raksha and Lovepreet after August 9," sources said.
The police, meanwhile, has sent the suicide note for handwriting examination. Besides, mobile phones and computers of the accused and the victim are also being sent for forensic examination.
The police is likely to approach Facebook officials to seek details of conversations between Lovepreet and Raksha.
