Chikkamagaluru: Parents of a 19-year-old have expressed outrage over police inaction in arresting a BJP worker in the abetment to suicide case of their daughter.


The victim Deepti, 17, had consumed poisonous substance on January 10. She passed away at a hospital in Mangaluru on January 14 without responding to treatment.

Deepti had left behind a death note in which she accused Hitesh (25), a BJP party worker of cheating her in love. Her parents had approached the Kudremukh police to file a complaint against Hitesh but the police reportedly did not file an FIR.
