Sep 07, 2010 01.30 PM
The case involving Jothi, a second year student at the Anna University, is getting murkier with the Rasipuram Police setting camp in Chennai for investigations with students and concerned college authorities.

Jothi, a second year BE student, was studying at the Anna University when she went to native place Rasipuram on 2 September. She was found hanging inside the house the next day. Though a lot was said about the death of this ECE student, the actual reason for her death is still a mystery. Initially it was told that Jothi committed suicide owing to increasing family problems.

Her family members and relatives suspected that Jothi was a victim of ragging and was forced to death due to this. Thus, a complaint was registered in the Rasipuram police station. Since initial investigations yielded no results, a team comprising police officers from Rasipuram has set up base in Chennai on Monday.

They were seen investigating students at the Anna University regarding the death of Jothi. A recent tip off has revealed that Jothi was constantly ragged at the college and a male student was sending her abusive messages on her mobile phone. Jothi's guardian in Chennai, Kumar told police that "It is certainly a case of ragging and Jothi was forced to death by abusive messages sent to her. I'm willing to appear in court and reveal all this before a judge".

More investigations are expected in the following days
