A 19-year-old girl committed suicide by consuming acid on Saturday night after she heard of the suicide of her childhood friend.
C. Vennala, a graduate, worked in a private company.
In the police complaint her brother C. Swamy said she was depressed after hearing about the suicide of her childhood friend K. Shiva Kumar.
According to the police, K. Shiva Kumar was married and the couple used to quarrel frequently. The wife questioned why was he was chatting with C. Vennala on WhatsApp and warned him that she would complain about it to their parents. Shiva Kumar apparently felt insulted by this, according to the police, and committed suicide on Saturday.
