KURNOOL: Medical students, including those doing PG at Kurnool Medical College, were shell shocked to know about the suicide of PG student Vishnupriya on Tuesday at her relative’s place in A Camp area in Kurnool.
Principal Dr G.S. Ram Prasad said it was tragic and unfortunate as the deceased was a bright student with a lot of promise to excel in her chosen field.
Orthopaedics professor Dr K.

There were four girl students in the department and the atmosphere was conducive to learning, he said.
Three Town circle inspector R.G. Subramanyam said the deceased student was residing with her aunt in Kurnool. In her suicide note, it was mentioned that as she was not up to the expectations of her parents, she did not want to continue the course and had no inclination to live. She appealed to her parents to excuse her having taken the extreme step, he said.
Her father Mohan Reddy said she was a very sensitive girl right from childhood. “She could not cope with the stress and uncertainties. She had sought my advice to drop from MS course as it was too taxing for her abilities,” he said, adding that he had advised her to continue as she had already completed three semesters....
