A first-year Intermediate student ended his life in the classroom at Sri Medha Junior College at Vanasthalipuram on Wednesday, police said.

Sixteen-year-old P. Bhavani Sai from Ramanthapur joined MEC course in the college and was residing at the college hostel.

His friend found lights on in the classroom at around 5 a.m. and alerted the lecturers.

“They found Sai hanging to the ceiling with a nylon rope around his neck,” Vanasthalipuram SI K. Nagaraju said.

Later, police found a note, purportedly written by the teenager, which said none was responsible for his death. Sai’s father is an attender at a TV studio.

A case of suspicious death under Section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Code was registered.

Dowry victim dies

A 21 year-old-woman, who was allegedly set ablaze by her husband at Mailardevpally for additional dowry, died on Tuesday night.

G. Aruna, was married to Naresh, a water tanker driver three years ago. The couple have a two-year-old daughter.

On November 28, the accused had a tiff with his wife. He later doused her with kerosene and set her afire, said Mailardevpally Sub Inspector G. Sharath Kumar.

Neighbours shifted her to the hospital, where she died while undergoing treatment on Tuesday night.

Police have formed a special team to arrest Naresh, the SI added.
