In the most recent update, the Visakhapatnam City Police have taken into custody four people in connection with the tragic suicide case of a girl from Bengal who sadly jumped from her hostel on July 14, 2023. The four individuals whom the police have detained are Gannu Kumaru, who was responsible for looking after Sadhana Ladies Hostel, Etcherla Surya Kumari, who owns the hostel, Durga Ravikanth, an assistant manager at Aakash Byju’s, and Gundu Rajeswara Rao, who manages the Aakash Byju’s branch in Vizag.
According to the police report, the actions or lack thereof by these four individuals may have contributed to Riti making the unfortunate decision she made. Initially, the case was filed as a suspicious death under Section 174 of the CrPC (Criminal Procedure Code). However, the police have now altered it to Section 304 (II) of the IPC (Indian Penal Code) to conduct a more thorough investigation. It’s worth noting that the Government of West Bengal had requested a comprehensive inquiry into this matter following allegations from the deceased girl’s parents, who suspected foul play in their daughter’s passing.
A team from the Bengal Police had previously arrived in Visakhapatnam to investigate the suicide of the 17-year-old girl. After conducting their inquiry, the city police determined that negligence by the college and hostel authorities played a role in Riti’s tragic demise. However, all the details surrounding this case have not been disclosed yet.
To make it more understandable for a 13-year-old, we can break it down into more straightforward language:
“Here’s the latest news about the sad incident involving Riti Saha, a young girl from Bengal who took her own life by jumping from her hostel on July 14, 2023, in Visakhapatnam. The police have arrested four people in connection with this case:
- Gannu Kumaru, who was in charge of the hostel.
- Etcherla Surya Kumari, the owner of the hostel.
- Durga Ravikanth, who worked as an assistant manager at Aakash Byju’s.
- Gundu Rajeswara Rao, the manager of Aakash Byju’s branch in Vizag.
The police believe that these individuals might have done something wrong that contributed to Riti’s decision to end her life. At first, the case was considered a suspicious death, but now the police are looking into it more deeply.
Riti’s parents suspected that something wasn’t right about their daughter’s death, and even the West Bengal Government asked for a thorough investigation.
A team of police officers from Bengal came to Visakhapatnam to look into what happened. They found out that the college and hostel people didn’t do their jobs properly, which might have led to Riti’s death. But there are still many things we don’t know about this case, and the police are continuing to investigate.”
