Chennai: Chairman of SVS College, Vasuki Subramanian, has been given 15 days judicial custody in Villupuram suicide case.
Three girl students of SVS Yoga Medical College at Kallakurichi near Villupuram in Tamil Nadu committed suicide on Saturday evening accusing the administration of charging excess fees and “torture”, and blaming college chairman Vasuki Subramanian for their death.
The bodies of the three were found in a well near the college. The girls were doing naturopathy courses. Sources said while Subramanian was absconding, her son Sukhi Verma had been arrested. The college has long seen protests over excess fees, including suicide bids in September and October over the matter.
