Deccan Chronicle - - CITY - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

“Nowa­days, I am afraid to be happy. I don’t know y ppl dnt want to look at me ven I’m happy in ma life (sic). Ev­ery mo­ment in my life is gng sooo worst (sic),” wrote 19-year-old K. Sai Durga Mounika on her What­sApp sta­tus be­fore hang­ing her­self to death on Wednesday.

Sai Durga Mounika, a fi­nal year en­gi­neer­ing stu­dent, com­mit­ted sui­cide at her res­i­dence in Dundi­gal. Her fam­ily mem­bers claimed that she was de­pressed due to fam­ily is­sues, which forced her to take this ex­treme step.

Sources said that she com­mit­ted sui­cide after her mother ad­mon­ished her over her ex­ces­sive use of smart phones and spend­ing time on so­cial me­dia.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, Sai Durga was stay­ing at her ma­ter­nal un­cle’s house along with her mother and brother in Su­raram un­der the Dundi­gal po­lice sta­tion. Her father Chan­drashekar left them a decade ago.

On Wednesday af­ter­noon, she had an ar­gu­ment with her mother over a gold chain and a ring. After the ar­gu­ment, when her mother and brother went out, she hanged her­self to death.

When her fam­ily mem­bers re­turned late in the evening, they rushed her to a nearby hos­pi­tal, but she was de­clared brought dead.

“Ac­cord­ing to her fam­ily, she was sen­si­tive and of­ten threat­ened them of com­mit­ting sui­cide over petty is­sues. On Wednesday, her mother ques­tioned her about the gold jew­ellery, due to which she felt of­fended and took this ex­treme step,” said Mr M. Pavan from the Dundi­gal po­lice sta­tion.

“We will re­cover her mo­bile phone and ver­ify her so­cial me­dia posts. Based on the ev­i­dence, the probe will pro­ceed.” added the SI.
