T Monisha, V Priyanka and E Saranya. All the three came from modest families. T Monisha, V Priyanka and E Saranya, who allegedly committed suicide on Saturday

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.

In a two-page suicide note that all three of them — E Saranya and V Priyanka, both 18, and T Monisha, 19 — signed, the girls said students had filed several complaints against Subramanian, to no avail. Citing “torture” by the management, the girls hoped that their suicide would finally force authorities to take action against the chairman.

The bodies of the three were found in a well near the college. The girls were doing naturopathy courses.

Below is the full text of the letter – translated verbatim – allegedly written by the three students

Saranya, Monisha, Priyanka…we are students of SVS naturopathy medical college. This college is collecting enormous fees. But once paid for all of the fees, any (bill) receipt is not issued. There is no enough coaching to the extent fee is charged. We have no teachers to teach us. This was put up as complaint many times.. No steps taken. More than studying, we have been working more hours after joining here. Ever since we started study here, our families have been extremely stressed out. This college Chairman Vasuki (Subramanian) always abuse us calling us ‘criminals’. We have been suffering here in this college. At least now please take action against this college

Because of these reasons only we are committing suicide…! But this Chairman Vasuki might term us characterless after this. We are doing this only so action is taken against this college. We beg you not to take her words or believe if she speaks ill of us. We have still not passed our 2nd year. But they have extracted 6 lakhs fee from us.

All this is written by us in complete sensible state of mind.

V Priyanka
E Saranya
T Monisha

    Very sorry to learn the reasons for suicide! Horrible and heart burning, indeed. Although the Management is absolutely responsible, however parents are equally responsible for their extreme steps. Had the parents of them brought them up in a way that failures are not the end of the life but to face and covert it as success. Atrocities are not to be tolerated but to be opposed with proper channel. Lesson to the other parents as to how they should rise their children from this incident.

      Three more cowards take the easy way out. Some of these people need to be told that there are humans who have faced far greater challenges than some petty college matters. At least 10 college suicides have been reported in the news over the past few days, and not a single one of them sounded like they were facing an issue that couldnt be overcome.

          You senseless moron, you should have been in their situation , then you would have known their pain. They have complained against the management and no action was taken, they were made to work ,cook and live in pathetic conditions. They were not taught any subjects and so they failed their exams. They were paying huge fees for nothing,They were literally help less.
