SB student falls to death, father blames ragging

CUTTACK: The SB Women’s College here was shocked on Monday when a student and hostel boarder allegedly fell to death on the campus. Police are investing all angles __ whether it was an accident or suicide or any other foul play.
The girl __ Swayamsiddha Jagyanseni Sahoo __ a Plus Three first year student, was found lying in a pool of blood on the ground near the Old Hostel of the college. She had apparently fallen from the roof of the three-storey building.
Sahoo, daughter of Executive Engineer Hrudananda Sahoo posted at Jeypore, was staying in the first floor. She is believed to have climbed up to the roof at around 8 am.
Stunned authorities and students managed to come to terms with the incident a couple of hours after and the police were informed. Police rushed to the spot and sent the body for postmortem.
According to Lalbag Police, how she fell down is yet to be established. Either she might have committed suicide for some reason or might have slipped and fallen absent-minded while talking over phone. Her phone has been recovered from beside the body, police said.
Police are investigating all aspects, said her parents who reached here after receiving the news. The father of the girl, who was in Bhubaneswar from Sunday, has alleged that his daughter died due to ragging. A case has been registered.
