Mangaluru, Jun 9: The case of a young girl, who killed herself within three days of the house warming ceremony of her new residence, which she bought from a woman, has taken a twist.
Ashwini (25), a native of Farangipete, now from Chitranjalinagara of Kumpala is the unfortunate victim of this tragedy.
While Ashwini was cheated by the woman to whom she paid cash for the house, the bank personnel had arrived on the day of the house warming and embarrassed the young girl. These events affected the girl psychologically and forced her to take the extreme step. This is revealed in the death note written by the girl before killing herself.
Ashwini was employed in Dubai and had come to her native place a few days ago. When she was working in Dubai, she got acquainted with a woman by the name Sangeetha. As per the agreement between Sangeetha and Ashwini, the house at Kumpala would be transferred to Ashwini’s name as soon as the bank loan was paid.
Sangeetha owed the bank Rs 18 lac home loan. She took Rs seven lac cash from Ashwini in advance. Ashwini also paid Rs 17,000 every month for eight months to Sangeetha to pay the EMI of the loan to the bank.
On June 5, a grand house warming ceremony was held in the presence of relatives and friends. When the relatives were still at home, the bank personnel arrived and warned that the house will be auctioned if the loan is not repaid. They also said that the EMI is not paid since a year. Ashwini, who wanted to show her achievement of buying a house at the young age, felt ashamed in front of her relatives and got depressed. The bank personnel had asked her to come to the bank branch on June 8.
Ashwini, who was completely dejected by the happenings was worried about facing the bank personnel on June 8. On June 7 night, she sat inside her room in the new house, wrote a the death note and then killed herself.
In the death note, which is written in Tulu language using English alphabets, deceased Ashwini says, “I am responsible for my own death. If police read the death note, that is enough. There is no need to investigate the matter.” Ashwini also mentioned how she was deceived by Sangeetha, her friend in Dubai. She also wrote ‘Nikhil I love you’, addressing her boyfriend and asked him to be given the IPhone she was using.
Devaki, the mother of Ashwini accused her friends of being the reason for her death. She spoke to the media and said, “Someshwar Nikhil and two other girls were in continuous contact with Ashwini. Even after the house warming ceremony was over, they were sitting on the terrace of the house, smoking cigarettes and spoiling my daughter. For Ashwini, her friends were more important. She never thought of her mother. Even I do not know that she was coming on vacation from Dubai. Her friends knew it. I was not even told about the deal of this house. Now the home loan has taken her life and made me orphan.”
According to the death note, no action can be initiated against any individual. If Ashwini’s mother Devaki, files a complaint against the bank officials and seizing personnel and also the woman named Sangeetha, then police can file a case of abetment of suicide against them.
Ullal station officer said that a case of suicide is registered so far.
