Kottayam (Kerala): Students Federation of India (SFI), the students wing of the ruling CPI(M) in Kerala, on Monday took out a march to a private engineering college at Kanjirappally near here protesting against the alleged suicide of a second-year degree student on June 2.

Shraddha, a resident of Ernakulam, was found hanging inside her hostel room on June 2. Students alleged that the college authorities took her to the hospital saying she fell unconscious.

Police stopped the SFI march at the gate of the college but the students managed to overpower the security cordon and entered the premises where they staged a sit-in protest inside the office building.

"She was upset after she came from the HoD's room. She said she wanted to die," a protesting girl student told the media.

Students alleged that the teachers used to mentally harass her.

"HoD, one teacher who seized the phone, and two other teachers are responsible for this death. The teachers are harassing the students in the name of internals. We have complained to the management numerous times," the students alleged.

The college management said they do not know why the student committed such an act.

Meanwhile, police said they have registered a case in the matter and a probe is on. PTI
