However, when the warden did not get a response despite knocking several times. The warden called the helper, Nandish, who peeped through the ventilator glass above the door. He was stunned to find the engineering student hanging.
The warden immediately reported the incident to the college principal, Dr Bhimsen Soragaon. The principal then immediately called the police. He rushed to the hostel with the police, and the door was broken in their presence.
While speaking with the reporters, the principal stated that he had no idea why the student took her life. However, he told, “The semester exam has been going on for three days. Today, there was a practical exam. The student’s roommate tried calling her up but she didn’t answer the phone. So Kavya (the warden) went to check on her.”
The police have notified the engineering student’s parents and are awaiting their arrival in Bengaluru to conduct the post-mortem examination. Moreover, a case of unnatural death has been registered at the Kengeri police station.
