Bhubaneswar, Aug 10:
Romesa Romanica (21), a technical student of Silicon Institute of Technology committed suicide in her college hostel here on Friday night.
Romanica, a third year IT student of the institute, hails from Mahakalapada in Kendrapara district. She was staying in Room No 232 of the college hostel with other three mates.
The girl hanged herself from the fan in her hostel room with her ‘chunni’ (scarf) while her room mates were away on vacation, Investigating Officer Laximinarayan Behera of Infocity police station told newsmen today.
“She was admitted to Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIIMS) hospital at around 11.30 pm last night, but was declared dead by the doctor. Autopsy reports said it was a clear case of suicide,” he said.
Romanica was under great mental stress after being rebuked by her father for having 14 back papers and this was the most likely reason for her suicide, college authorities said.
Duryadhan Sethi (55), father of the deceased, however, rejected the allegation and blamed the college authorities for his daughter’s death.
