Class X girl found dead at Nirbhaya Centre

Thodupuzha: A 15-year-old girl of the Nirbhaya centre here was found dead on Tuesday. Bijimol, hailing from Elappara, was a class X student of Kudayathoor Government HSS.

Though she was rushed to the Thodupuzha taluk hospital, her life could not be saved. A suicide letter, presumed to be written by the girl, was recovered from the spot. But her relatives alleged that the handwriting on the letter was not that of Bijumol’s. Her kin created an uproar, saying that unruly behaviour of the workers forced her to take the extreme step. The allegations, however, were denied by the staff.

Authorities later gave the relatives an assurance that, in case of a complaint, the tahsildar would investigate the matter, as per the instructions of the Idukki RDO.

The body was handed over to the relatives after autopsy at the Kottayam Medical College Hospital.

Meanwhile, the police have ruled out anything unnatural in the incident. Bijimol was put under the care of the Nirbhaya centre three years ago after her parents parted ways and entered into separate wedlocks.
