Jaipur: Two days back when Deeksha Sharma locked herself in her room, her parents thought she was studying for exam. They had no idea that the college student had lost her lonely battle to sexual harassment. Accused had hounded her for four months. When her parents broke the room open they found her hanging from the ceiling fan.
"The were hounding her for four months....they would stalk her, make indecent remarks when she went to college and had made it difficult for her to step out of the house," One of Deeksha's friends say.
Govind Sharma, Deeksha's father, says,"It was really a troubled time for her. She was very upset."
In her suicide note, Deeksha named six student, five of who have been arrested by the police. One is still on the run. The police are now investigating the matter.
Bane Singh Choudhary, Investigating Officer, Dausa, "We have registerd an FIR against 6 students."
While Deeksha unfortunately took the extreme step of ending her life, the girls from Mahatma Gandhi College in Dausa say rampant sexual harassment outside the campus is deterring them from attending college regularly.
