Jajpur: An 18-year-old polytechnic student was found dead in her hostel room in Odisha’s Jajpur district on Tuesday. Police said that the body of a third year student of electrical engineering was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her hostel room in the college premises under Korei police station area.
The incident created tension on the campus and his family alleged that the college administration was responsible for his death as constant ragging forced him to take his life.
Her mother alleged that a male student of the college messaged my daughter that she has been selected for campus placement, but threatened that she would not be allowed to appear for it. She was so scared that she told us that she would not stay in the hostel anymore.
Not only this, another student also tried to thrash him yesterday. He said that my daughter had not informed the college authorities for fear of reprisals from the students involved. On the other hand, the police sent the girl’s body for postmortem and said that the investigation has been started. Inspector Sanghamitra Mallick, in-charge of Korei police station, said that we are probing the matter from all possible angles.
