The Chandigarh police have made no headway or arrests in the suicide case of a BDS student in which a lecturer of Dr Harvansh Singh Judge Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital,Panjab University,was booked Saturday after a suicide note blaming the teacher was recovered.

Police said they are investigating the alleged role of Savita Prashar,head of the Bio-Chemistry department,named in the suicide note,before they make any arrests. They said the principal and teachers of the institute denied that Prashar could be directly responsible,as she had not taught the deceased for a while and was not in touch with her. Also,the parents of the deceased have not demanded any immediate action against the accused,said the police.

Panjab University Teachers’ Association (PUTA) president Dr Devinder Singh said the teacher concerned has an impeccable reputation.

Ankurita was found dead in her Sector 32 ITBP complex residence after allegedly committing suicide Friday. She apparently took the step after failing to clear her bio-chemistry compartment examination for the third time.

Meanwhile,students of the college continued to protest outside the college

on Sunday.
