An M.Sc first year student, Banavath Vijaya Lakshmi (23) allegedly died by consuming poison in Narsapuram village in the district on Wednesday night.

The victim's parents allege that their daughter was subjected to severe harassment by some youth in the village, which drove her to take the extreme step.

In a complaint lodged with Vissannapet police, Vijaya Lakshmi's father B. Balaji alleged that four youth of Narsapuram village used to tease the girl and the accused did not mend their ways even after repeated warnings.

Unable to bear the torture, Vijaya Lakshmi took poison and ended her life, he said and demanded stern action against the eve-teasers.

A case under Section.174 CrPc (suspicious death) has been registered and the body was sent for post-mortem on Thursday. “The police will investigate into the allegations made by the girl's parents and alter the sections later. The culprits would be booked based on the investigation report in the case,” said the Vissannapet police.
