The police have registered a case of abetment to suicide against her fiancé after her parents filed a complaint
A 25-year-old first year law student at a private college allegedly died by suicide by jumping off the terrace of a seven-storey building of Bangalore Institute of Technology in Vishweshwarapuram in south Bengaluru, police said.
The deceased has been identified as Vani C, an LLB student at Visveswarapura College of Law in VV Puram and a resident of Banashankari in the city.
According to the police, the incident occurred at around 12pm on Monday. The police have also got a two-page death note in her bag, apparently written by Vani prior to her death.
College principal Sudha G said the incident occurred shortly after the morning break and was brought to her notice around noon.
The principal said that the authorities were unaware of why Vani had taken the extreme step, adding that they suspected family and personal issues as the reason behind the act.
According to the police, Vani was engaged and she was upset that her wedding was called off.
After the incident, the VV Puram police summoned the girl’s parents to the police station to collect further details based on the death note.
The police have registered a case of abetment to suicide under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 306 against her fiancé Chandrashekar after her parents filed a complaint.
The body was shifted to the Kempegowda Hospital mortuary for postmortem, and further investigation is underway, the police said.
