Third-year MANIT student commits suicide in hostel room

A third-year Mechanical Engineering student at Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT), Bhopal committed suicide on Wednesday, February 10, 2016.

When Pallavi’s friends returned to the hostel after their morning lectures at 11 a.m., they found Malla Venkata Sai Pallavi hanging from the ceiling fan in her hostel room. The hostel authorities called the local police who then rushed her to Hamidia hospital, where she was declared dead.

Pallavi’s
friend said, “She left a suicide note stating that she was unable to
concentrate on her studies, and had committed many mistakes. She also mentioned
in the suicide note that because of her mistakes she was unworthy to her
parents and friends.”

The
police has registered a case under section 174 of Criminal Procedure Court, and
have started the investigations. A police official said, “Apart from the suicide
note, we also found that she had visited a hospital two days before the
incident.”

Pallavi’s
friends told PaGaLGuY that she was a sincere student and had maintained a 6
point CGPA (Cumulative Grade Points Average) until now. They added, “Her father
along with a friend came to Bhopal today, February 11, 2016, morning. Her
mother hasn’t been informed about the suicide since she is a BP patient. Her
father is taking the body to Vishakhapatnam by air today itself.”

The
deceased used to live in Kalpana Chawla, Hostel no 7 at MANIT, and was a native
of Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.
