The youngster is the daughter of Dharmapalan, who is a native of Edathuruthy in Thrissur. The police have stated that though the incident happened at 4.45 pm, the college authorities informed them of the incident only around 7.30 pm.

According to reports, Ooshmal had reportedly received a phone call minutes before she jumped off the building. The police have not disclosed any further details on this, claiming they need to question her friends, classmates and other acquaintances first.

Meanwhile, a post which Ooshmal made on her Facebook page recently hints at certain disagreements and heated exchanges she had with another student of the same college.
