A minor student Soundarya (17) of Ankanahalli, HD Kote taluk, who had tried to commit suicide by immolating herself, passed away on Wednesday.
Soundarya was admitted to JSS hospital, Mysuru. She tried to commit suicide as she was allegedly threatened by a youth named Kiran.
It is alleged that Kiran was forcing her to love him. Though she rejected his proposal, Kiran used to follow her everywhere. Soundarya’s parents, who had come to know about this, had even warned Kiran not to disturb her but to no avail.
Kiran had even threatened Soundarya that he would throw acid on her if she did not accept his proposal. Scared of this, she set herself on fire and tried to commit suicide.
Soundarya was studying PU in JSS College for women, Saraswathipuram.
