Khordha: Fed up of facing humiliation due to eve-teasing by her ‘stalker’, a college girl allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison under Balugaon police limits in Khordha district.
The victim, a +3 student was rushed to Balugaon hospital and later was shifted to MKCG Hospital in Berhampur in a critical condition where she succumbed while undergoing treatment.
The victim’s alleged stalker, identified as Prakash Dalei, of Badakul area used to allegedly stalk her wherever she went and eve-teased her, following which he was arrested earlier basing on a complaint filed by her family.
