Girl ends life; innocent youth lynched by mob

An angry mob lynched an engineering student suspecting that he had killed a girl at Adavuladeevi village of Nizampatnam mandal in Guntur district on Sunday . However, it later turned out that the girl had committed suicide as her parents had arranged her marriage against her wishes.

Shaik Jasmine, 19, had hanged herself from the ceiling at her residence when her parents were away shopping for her marriage. However, her relatives and neighbours attacked two youths -Vemulapalli Sai and Pawan Kumar -who raised alarm after seeing her body .

Suspecting that the youths had killed her, the girl's kin tied them to a tree and beat them up severely . The locals allegedly undressed the youths before attacking them. Hours later, one of the youths succumbed to his injuries at Repalle government general hospital.The relatives of the deceased student staged a protest in front of the hospital demanding the arrest of all those involved in the attack.

Ironically , the two youths were later identified as friends of Jasmine's brother Khaja. According to Adavuladeevi police, Sai and Pawan had received a phone call from Jasmine saying she was going to commit suicide as she was being married off forcibly . She had told the youths that she did not like the groom. To prevent Jasmine from ending her life, Sai and Pawan rushed to her residence at around 11am on Sunday . But by the time they reached her house, Jasmine had already killed herself. Shocked, the duo alerted the neighbours, only to get attacked.
