Riot and damage occurred at a school in Kallakurichi on July 17 as a result of girl’s passing . On Friday, Madras High Court ordered parents of a Class 12 student who had died in Kallakurichi to receive their daughter’s body, which is now in police custody. The court also urged the parents not to prolong this matter.

Tamil Nadu government asked court to give instructions to parents on how to gather student’s lifeless remains and perform the final rites.

High Court Bench instructed parents to pick up the body by Saturday, July 23, at 11 a.m., or else police action will be conducted. On Saturday between six and seven in the morning, parents have agreed to pick up the body.

The district superintendent of police, S Selvakumar, was moved on July 19 with immediate effect in response to the violence that broke out in Tamil Nadu’s Kallakurichi following the murder of a Class 12 student who allegedly fell to her death from terrace of her private school’s hostel.

A second autopsy of the girl who committed herself on July 18 after she was reportedly tormented by two teachers at her school in Kallakurichi was ordered by Madras High Court. The girl’s father was permitted to stay for the process as per the court’s ruling.

According to the police, “abrasions” were reported in the initial post-mortem report. Multiple wounds and haemorrhage were listed as the cause of death in initial autopsy.

The deceased girl’s father had petitioned the Supreme Court for a modification of Madras High Court’s ruling regarding the second autopsy.

Class XII student at a private school in Kallakuruchi, Tamil Nadu, who allegedly leaped from her hostel’s rooftop provoked violent demonstrations in the neighbourhood, leading the Salem police to deploy strong security around the school and adjacent places. In some instances, Section 144 had to be implemented. Girl was allegedly being tortured by school teachers.

The girl’s suicide letter claimed that a teacher had reportedly tormented her.

All private nursery, matriculation, and CBSE schools that stayed closed on Monday as a result of violent demonstrations over the schoolgirl’s murder have since received a notification.
