In a shocking incident at the College of Agriculture in Vellayani, a student identified as Lohita from Andhra Pradesh has been arrested by the police for allegedly inflicting severe burn injuries on her roommate, Deepika. The assault occurred within their hostel room, leading to swift action by college authorities and law enforcement.
Lohita, a fourth-year student hailing from Andhra Pradesh, was apprehended by the police along with her accomplices, Nikhil and Jinsi, following the distressing incident. Deepika, also from Andhra Pradesh, suffered burn injuries as a result of the attack. The college administration wasted no time and promptly suspended Lohita, Nikhil, and Jinsi in the wake of the incident. Lohita was produced before the court and remanded for a two-week period.
Due to Lohita’s limited knowledge of languages other than Telugu, the police sought the assistance of college teacher Prof Paul to facilitate the interrogation. Thiruvallam SHO Rahul Raveendran confirmed that the police have gathered evidence from the hostel room where the assault took place.
According to the police investigation, Lohita, hailing from a privileged background, had been coercing Deepika into performing various tasks for her. When Deepika refused to comply, Lohita resorted to physical abuse. Deepika, fearing for her life due to Lohita’s threats, kept the torment hidden from others. Deepika is originally from Kondupally in Chittoor district.
The brutal assault occurred on May 18th when Lohita forcefully seized Deepika’s mobile phone and repeatedly struck her on the head. Subsequently, she immobilized Deepika by tying her hands to a chair using a shawl. Lohita proceeded to inflict burn injuries on Deepika’s body using a hot kettle filled with tomato curry. Even after reheating the kettle, she continued to burn Deepika’s back by lifting her t-shirt.
Adding to the horror, Lohita sprinkled chilli powder on the already burnt areas of Deepika’s body. Only after subjecting her to severe abuse did Lohita finally release Deepika from her restraints. Deepika, in a desperate plea, fell at Lohita’s feet, begging to be spared from further harm. Instead, Lohita callously kicked Deepika in the face and issued threats to her life if she dared to disclose the torture.
The following day, Deepika managed to escape from the hostel and returned to her home. The disturbing incident came to light when Deepika’s family visited the college seeking information about the distressing episode.
