Bengaluru: A 17-year-old second PUC student was found hanging in her Akshayanagar residency in Ramamurthynagar, Bengaluru on Tuesday (May 7).
The victim was identified as S Leena. She was studying at a private college in the city.
Leena’s parents, Srinivas and Lilly claim that Leena was forced to commit suicide after she faced continuous harassment from her SSLC classmate.
The boy who is accused of harassing her is currently studying at a private college in Kasturinagar.
The boy was reported to have forced Leena to reciprocate his love for her from over a year. Last year in December, Leena’s father had even warned him to stay away from her. But the boy continued to harass her even though Leena was reluctant.
Leena’s parents alleged that the boy forced her to take this extreme step and have filed a complaint against him in Ramamurthynagar police station.
