VILUPPURAM -- Parents of one of the three girls, who committed suicide in Tamil Nadu, will file a petition in Madras High Court.

Yesterday, four people were detained in connection with this case where three second-year students of SVS Medical College of Yoga and Naturopathy and Research Institute at Kallakurichi near Viluppuram in Tamil Nadu committed suicide.

The girls, in their suicide note, have accused the administration of charging excess fees and 'torture' and blaming college chairman Vasuki Subramanian for their death.

The three girls namely E. Saranya and V. Priyanka (both 18 years) and T. Monisha (19 years) in a two-page suicide note said that the students had filed several complaints against Subramanian but to no avail. Citing "torture" by the management, the girls hoped that their suicide would finally force the authorities to take action against the chairman.

The girls accused the administration of charging 'excess fees' around Rs. six lakh and never giving the bill. They also mentioned that the college lacked proper classes or teachers and there was 'nothing to learn'.

The students had been protesting for more than a month over lack of infrastructure, but it was only in the last two weeks that the protest turned vigorous.

The police, which have begun investigating this matter, have so far arrested the Shokkar Verma, the son of the chairman, in connection with this case.
