The smoke from Sathvika’s hostel floor was noticed by students and who returned to the class after the lunch. The hostel authorities then found her room was on fire.

“We are not sure if she used petrol, kerosene or a deodorant, as the scene was heavily burnt, even after school officials doused the fire. We have taken samples from the body and the ash, to investigate this further,”said senior police officer N Bujanga Rao.

No suicide note

No suicide note was found in the room, said another officer. “She had called her mother and told her that she does not want to stay in the hostel,” he added.
