Hyderabad: Reason behind teens' suicide still unknown

Child rights activists demand a high level inquiry into the case.

HYDERABAD: A day after two SSC students jumped to their death because they could not deal with their alleged academic pressure, the police are probing into the details behind the incident. While police are questioning the friends of the two girls and the management of the school, child rights’ activists have demanded a high-level inquiry into the incident.

The students Bhargavi Patel and Kala Sravani, who were at the former’s home for combined studies, jumped from the eighth floor flat of the apartment complex located at LB Nagar, on Thursday evening. LB Nagar police registered a case under section 174 of the CrPC.

Meanwhile, Akshara International School where the two girls were studying, had declared a holiday on Friday. “They will be in our hearts and we express our condolences,” said a message by the school management.

Investigating officials said that though the incident appears to be a clear case of suicide, they are still probing into the details, as the cause of suicide is not known still and even the parents are clueless about it.

The parents said that the Sravani had come to Bhargavi’s residence in the afternoon and they continued to study together till evening. They were very normal during the whole time and were preparing for the second paper of the pre-final test on Friday. “After finishing the formalities of handing over the bodies to the families, we will be questioning their friends and also teachers. Since it was a Friday, they were not available,” an official said.

Balala Hakkula San-gham has demanded an inquiry to find out what went wrong and what really happened on the fateful day. BHS while appealing to the parents said that instead of feeling that by giving material things and money to their children, they were doing enough, they should spend quality time with the children.
