DU students committed suicide after her boyfriend allegedly hurled caste slurs at her and even threatened to leak her private videos

In a shocking incident, a student studying in the Delhi University (DU) allegedly committed suicide after her boyfriend reportedly dumped her and hurled caste-base abuses at her. The girl allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself.

According to an Indian Express report, the police has recovered a suicide note where the girl who was a first-year student of commerce has blamed her boyfriend and her troubled relationship for taking the drastic step. In her suicide note, the girl has also alleged that the boy used caste slurs at her when she told him that she wanted to marry him.

The police have lodged a case under  SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and IPC sections 306 (abetment) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

According to reports, the police is now heading to Patna to arrest the boy who left for his hometown last year. The girl’s brother has also alleged that the boy had “sexually exploited” her and even threatened to leak her private videos. The family has also claimed that the girl even approached the police station but the police did not assist her. A rape case has also been registered against the accused on the basis of the family’s allegation.

“We wanted a way out, but my sister was broken. Even when she spoke to the man a few days before she hanged herself, she said she could make out he was fooling her. We were very disturbed and went to the police,” the girl’s brother told the daily. The boy identified as Prakash also asked the woman to leave her family and accompany him to Bihar.
