Subramanian, the victim’s neighbour said: “We don’t want any outsiders at our beloved girl’s funeral. Her father was a farmer like us and had gone to Singapore. Her mother worked as an insurance advisor and slowly they picked up in their economic status. The girl used to commute to school daily before taking up an accommodation in the hostel on July 1. It is a real tragedy to our whole village.”
