BJP alleges conversion bid after TN girl commits suicide!


Tamil Nadu: The Thirukattupalli police on Friday said they have arrested the warden of a missionary school hostel in connection with the suicide of a Class 12 girl, with the BJP alleging that the girl was harassed because she refused to convert to Christianity.

TN’s BJP chief K Annamalai said the police are trying to change the narrative. “There is a videographed confession statement of the girl. How did the SP come to the conclusion that it’s fake?”

The police, however, maintained that they haven’t reached any conclusion and were still carrying out an investigation.

The 17-year-old died on Wednesday after hospitalisation. According to the FIR, the warden allegedly forced the student to clean the hostel rooms. A purported video of the girl has gone viral in which she indicated that she might have been harassed by the hostel staff because her parents refused to convert her.

As of now, we cannot consider that video as a dying declaration,” Thanjavur’s superintendent of police, Ravali Priya Gandhpueni, said, adding that the “the initial statement of the girl’s parents did not have any angle of conversion.”
