Cops explore angles in student suicide case
KOLHAPUR: The Laxmipuri police investigating the nursing student suicide case are exploring various angles to determine the reason behind the death. The deceased — Shefali Raju Pawar alias Pooja — was found hanging from the ceiling of a room at the premises of Chhatrapati Pramila Raje (CPR) civil hospital on Friday morning. She had joined the nursing course two years back and was staying at the CPR hostel. “We are investigating the case in details to find out the reasons behind the suicide. We are exploring several angles in this regard. One such angle is that she might be under stress due to regular college work as well as pressure of the study material. There can be also other factors that might have led her to take extreme step,” said a police officer investigating the case. The officer said that they are questioning other students at the college, especially the deceased’s close friends including her classmates. “We are also searching for those who were in constant touch with her and with whom she communicated before ending her life. We expect to get some leads regarding her death if she had hinted about taking such step while talking with anybody,” he said.
