Suicide of Tamil Nadu schoolgirl: For re-post-mortem, step to choose doctor!

The family of a schoolgirl whose death sparked protests in Tamil Nadu has decided to approach the Supreme Court to have a second autopsy conducted by a doctor of their choice.
"Our counsel would make a reference before the Chief Justice of India today. We have informed the police and the Tamil Nadu government about our move."

The investigation is to determine whether the girl died by suicide. She reportedly jumped from the third floor of her hostel on the campus of a private boarding school in Kallakurichi, about 260 km from Chennai. Police said a note found in her room said she was struggling in several subjects and was being humiliated by her teachers.

The girl's family alleged that she was psychologically harassed by two teachers. They claimed that the wall near where she was found dead had a bloody palm print. They argued that his indicated a physical struggle.

The Madras High Court yesterday ordered a repeat autopsy but rejected the parents' request that a doctor of their choice conduct the autopsy.

Police detained several school employees, including two teachers, the principal, a secretary and a correspondent.

The girl's death sparked massive protests. The agitation outside the school campus turned violent on Sunday as protesters went on a rampage, vandalizing classrooms and setting school buses on fire.

The High Court asked the police to take strict action against the rioters. Over 100 suspects were taken into custody for disorderly conduct.

Chief Minister MK Stalin called for calm.

"Kallakurichi incidents have caused so much pain. Educational institutions must think of students as their own children and teach. Anything against this, I warn you, we will make you face the law and punish you. Taking advantage of this tragic incident, some have come together and acted contrary with the law. Everyone should realize that violence is against growth. Only a peaceful Tamil Nadu can be an inclusive Tamil Nadu," Stalin said.

Two ministers who were inspecting the damage at the school said in a statement: "On Sunday, more than 3,500 people disguised as students and alumni gathered unexpectedly and indulged in rioting. A separate team would be formed to track those spreading rumors on social media networks." media and inciting violence."
