The Commissionerate Police has got the post-mortem report of the BJB College girl, Ruchika Mohanty, who was found hanging in the college hostel recently.

The post-mortem report confirmed that the student died of asphyxia due to hanging with a rope, informed police.

Meanwhile, Commissionerate Police has sent the viscera sample to laboratory for more tests.

Ruchika, a Plus 3 first year student of History (Hons), alleged that she was mentally tortured by the three senior girl students that compelled her to take the extreme step.  

Later Jhumki Rath, superintendent of Karubaki hostel of BJB college said, “Upon being informed about it, we rushed to her room and knocked on the door in a bid to save her life. At that time we were not sure that she had already died. Instead of coming to a conclusion, we called her to open the door. When she did not respond, we broke open the door with the help of a crowbar in the presence of students and other hostel staff before the arrival of police.”

Meanwhile, the youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party and deceased parents has demanded a CBI probe into the case. President of the wing Irasis Acharya, addressing a press meet, said, “Investigation in Ruchika’s case is not being properly done.  The state government should come up with anti-ragging law to avoid recurrence of such activities.”

Acharya also demanded the government come up with a toll free anti-ragging number and a task force to investigate such issues.

Terming Ruchika’s incident shameful, Acharya threatened to launch protests if Ruchika is not given justice.

On the other hand, the student wing of the Congress staged protests at Lower PMG seeking justice for Ruchika Mohanty’s family and resignation of Higher Education Minister.  More than 100 Congress agitators held the state government responsible for Ruchika’s death. They also sought action against three seniors about whom Ruchika had mentioned in her suicide note.
