Savukku Shankar, an independent journalist who is known for his strong political opinions in social media platforms, in his recent video, claimed that Srimathi was in love with her fellow student named Balamanikandan and ended her life after her teachers confronted about it to her. Shankar ruled out that the injuries that took place in the body of the deceased were caused after she fell down from third floor. He said that Srimathi got caught to her mother after writing a letter to Balamanikandan and her mother was planning to change her school.
Mother of student Srimathi who allegedly died due to the torture of her school teachers, had said that she is going to approach Supreme court and is looking to do post mortem with the presence of a doctor from her side. Srimathi’s mother also wanted educated youths to come out raising voice for the issue like how farmers came forward. She also expressed her sorrow over not being able to do rituals to her daughter at right time due to the ongoing issue.
On Sunday, a huge protest took place at Kallakurichi, Tamilnadu regarding the death of a teen student at a private residential school. Initially, reports suggested that the girl wrote a letter reasoning the cause of her death but her parents who had doubts in their daughter’s demise, staged a protest with their relatives.

Though the teachers denied the allegations, parents and relatives of the student blocked the Kallakurichi-Salem highway on Wednesday, raising slogans against the school management. The incident took place near Kaniyamoor town.
In the note which was left behind, the girl named two teachers and accused them of torturing her and other two students to study always. “The two teachers were brought to the police station for an inquiry. They said that they just casually asked her to concentrate more and study hard as she was very playful” said S Selvakumar, SP of Kallakurichi.
Close to 50 family members staged a “Road Roko” at the Kallakurichi-Salem highway seeking justice for her death, accusing the school management of pushing her to take the extreme step, said the police. The protest turned violent and massive on Sunday.
While the school was completely ransacked, the protesters set fire to all the school vehicles. During the protest, 55 policemen were injured due to stone pelting. Followed by the outrageous protest, Maths and Physics teacher were arrested.
According to police, more than 329 people who were involved in the riot were arrested. Now, on Monday, Madras High Court made a series of comments regarding the case. Firmly assuming that the protest didn’t take place in anger but a completely staged one, the court allowed for the post mortem of the girl’s body one more time and ordered the parents to do the final rituals in a peaceful manner. However, mother of the deceased said that she is going to approach Supreme Court to get justice for the death of her child.
In the meantime, Savukku Shankar, in his video, had said that the girl was involved in a love relationship with her fellow student named Balamanikandan and police could have became aware of it now. Shankar suggested police to check the Whatsapp, phone call history between Balamanikandan and Srimathi to conclude the case. Shankar pointed out the 40 seconds CCTV footage which showed the student walking from second floor to third floor, moments before committing suicide.
Savukku Shankar said that Srimathi’s mother was trying to change her school and paid the fees in her new school but decided to let her study in Sakthi Matriculation school as Srimathi was adamant about it. The journalist firmly says that everyone including teachers and students were aware about the love relationship between Srimathi and Balamanikandan. One of the teachers Srimathi named in her letter, could have confronted her, said Savukku and said that the theories about school administrators sexually molesting the girl are absolutely false.
