After her parents divorced, the girl's mother had committed suicide two years back. The girl, who had failed to clear PU examination, had started to live with her grandparents since then.
The youngster did not take kindly to the advice being meted out to her by her aged grandparents, Somasundar (85), and his wife, Leelavathi, residents of Laxmikantha Nagara in Hebbalu here. Attacking her grandparents was her routine habit, neighbours stated. On Thursday too, the lady got wild after her grandparents advised her to mend her ways.
