Suicide bid by girl alleging harassment by student union leaders

Thiruvananthapuram: An undergraduate girl student of University College in the state capital tried to commit suicide alleging harassment by student union activists.

The first year student was found with her veins slashed in the women's restroom. Sources said she had taken pain killers in excess too.

Medical College Hospital sources said her condition was stable.

The police said they had recovered a two-page suicide note from her residence in Attingal.

The parents of the girl had filed a missing person complaint with the police after the girl did not turn up after leaving for college on May 2. Her phone too was switched off.

College employees found the girl unconscious. The police said she had written on social media platforms that precious academic hours were lost to political programmes and campaigns organised by student leaders. She had also named a couple of student leaders in the note, the police said.

The college had recently secured top grades in the previous assessment by the National Institutional Ranking Framework.
