Students went berserk at the loss and vandalised the college and hostel premises, hurling stones at windows and damaging the panes, after which they had to be controlled by the police.

Agasha reportedly had a room on the seventh floor. The unfortunate incident happened when she went to get her washed clothes back from the common passage where she had hung them.

According to reports, she saw that a duppatta had fallen on the fibre sheet below and climbed onto it to retrieve the dupatta. The fibre sheet gave way and Agasha fell to her death.

On hearing a loud sound, students and the hostel guards rushed to the spot and found that Agasha was lying in a pool of blood.

Upon rushing to a nearby private hospital, Agasha was declared dead on arrival by the doctors. Police have told media that a case of negligence will be filed against the college if Agasha’s parents want to press charges, otherwise, a case of unnatural death will be registered.

Meanwhile, the family of the deceased student pledged to sue the university for recklessness.
