DAV Biz School girl suicide: Cops record statements of parents

| | BHUBANESWAR | in Bhubaneswar

Police on Wednesday recorded the statements of the parents of DAV School of Business Management (DSBM) student Tanya Banerjee, who committed suicide in the school hostel recently.

The statement of Tanya’s mother Keya Banerjee was recorded at the Capital police station. She alleged that physical and mental torture meted by some hostel inmates forced Tanya to commit suicide and demanded stringent action against the persons responsible for her daughter’s death.

“Registering a case under Section-306 of the IPC is not sufficient. I want strong action against those who forced my daughter to take the extreme step,” she said.

She had on Tuesday alleged that before Tanya’s death, a girl had called them up and threatened of dire consequences. “She also warned me that strong action was being taken against Tanya,” she added.

Besides, the family members further alleged that the police are dragging their feet in expediting the investigating process since one of the college girls interrogated in this connection is a senior bureaucrat’s daughter.

However, DCP Satyabrata Bhoi had on Tuesday said if the girl’s parents have any specific allegations against anybody, they can record their statements before police. It would be investigated.
