Fed up with being constantly harassed by her seniors and poor facilities at her hostel, a 17-year-old student of Ratnapuri Polytechnic College in Sangareddy district of Telengana allegedly hanged herself in her room, according to a report in the Deccan Chronicle.
The minor girl, identified as A Shahasra, was distressed over the lack of basic facilities at the hostel ever since she joined the department of agriculture after completing SSC in 2016. Shahasra, a topper at school, was uncomfortable with the fact that the hostel made students share cots and that there was no full-time female warden in-charge of the girls.
Unable to bear the callousness of the college and hostel authorities, Shahasra allegedly hung herself from her room's ceiling, leaving behind a suicide note that said, "God, I am undergoing hell here. It is a waste to study in this college," reported The News Minute.
Sahasra's father, Rajashekar blames hostel authorities and their negligence for his daughter's death. "Seniors have been harassing my daughter and there were no basic facilities for the girls..." the Deccan Chronicle quoted him as saying.
According to a report on ETV Telangana, members of Shahasra's family and her village gathered outside the hostel demanding action against the institution and the college authorities.
