HYDERABAD: A 22-year-old engineering student ended her life by jumping off a private hostel building’s terrace in Maisammaguda in Dhulapally on Monday night. Police suspect B Chandrika took the extreme step owing to her poor academic performance.
Chandrika was doing her fourth year civil engineering in Malla Reddy Institute of Technology (MRIT) in Maisammaguda.
Police did not find any suicide note. “During a preliminary investigation, we found out that Chandrika had more than 20 backlogs. She was very upset that she might not do well in the ongoing exams,” inspector S Ramesh said. Her parents had also asked her to clear the backlogs. Chandrika’s last exam was on Tuesday. A suicide case was registered under CrPC sections.
