“In November, there were some issues with Meghana and her classmates. My wife had visited the college and met HOD Rajkumar to inform him about the issue. Someone in the college had lost a mobile phone and my daughter was being blamed for it. Meghana had not taken the mobile but the entire class blamed her. After that incident, my daughter was blocked from the WhatsApp group of the class in which notes were shared. When she asked her classmates for the notes, they would refuse. They use to send messages in the group saying she was a bad girl. She was harassed every day.”

A police official has been quoted as saying by Times Of India –

“We have been visiting the college since Wednesday and the coordinator, a professor, has not been coming. His mobile phone is switched off and his house is locked. The four students who have been named in the FIR too are not attending classes, and their mobile phones are switched off. Since they are students, we did not visit their homes.”
