Violence On Chennai Campus After Student Caught Cheating Hangs Herself

Chennai Sathyabama University students told to vacate hostel after violent protest

Police personnel and fire and rescue services rushed to the scene to bring the situation under control.

The students of the Sathyabama Deemed University in Chennai set things inside the campus on fire after a girl student, who was allegedly caught cheating in an exam, allegedly committed suicide in her hostel room.

Visuals from the university show a blaze in a building on campus with tables and chairs set on fire. The deceased was identified as Raga Monica Reddy (18), a native of Hyderbad.

Over the past few years, the Sathyabama University has faced violence and arson over strict rules as students protested restrictions over talking to opposite gender, dress codes and approval from AICTE. According to early reports, the violence and unrest were sparked by the suicide of Ragamoulika, a first year BSc Computer Science student who hung herself to death inside her hostel.

Police sources said that she was caught indulging in malpractice during exams on Wednesday. The incident happened when the girl was writing the chemistry paper for her semester exam and was found copying. Her body has been sent to the Royapettah government hospital for autopsy.

The police was stationed in the campus later to prevent further violence.

"When we interrogated the protesting students, they had first condemned the university for its tough curriculum, lack of facilities in the hostel and then talked about the student's suicide".
