Harassed by classmates, law student kills self

20-year-old was being bullied by four accused since June 14

A 20-year-old law student, who was allegedly being harassed by his classmates, was on Thursday found dead at his home, the police said Saturday.

The deceased’s father, a police head constable, filed a complaint at Kavi Nagar police station against his son’s four classmates for mentally torturing the youth since June 14, Superintendent of Police (City) Shlok Kumar said.

The father also gave the police the mobile phone of the deceased. The phone has a recorded video clip of the deceased in which he alleges that he was harassed by his friends and that led him to take the extreme step, SP Kumar said.

As per the complaint filed in the case, the student had told his mother about the harassment he was facing but she asked him to focus on his studies instead. She later informed her husband about the matter who then called the accused and warned them not to disturb his son, the police said.

A case under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered. The matter is being probed as to how the deceased was being harassed by his friends, they said.
