A 15-year-old girl residing in Bilwaradahalli in Anekkal in Bengaluru was found hanging from the ceiling of her residence on Monday.
Chandana V, a Class 9 student was found hanging by her father Vasudev at their home on Monday morning. According to Deccan Herald, Vasudev works as a security guard at a mall and returned home in the morning after a night shift.
His wife and two sons left the house for work and college respectively and Vasudev was taking a nap in his room. When Vasudev entered the adjacent room a little while later, he found his daughter hanging from the ceiling. According to the report, Chandana was still alive when Vasudev found her. Vasudev soon rushed to get his wife, who works nearby. However, Chandana was declared brought dead by doctors, states the report.
No suicide note, but a threat note
While the police were not able to recover any suicide note from the house, they found a threat note addressed to the girl's father Vasudev.
The letter, purportedly written by a black magician, in Kannada reads: â€śYou didnâ€™t know about the power of my mantra, Vasudev? See, how I made your daughter hang herself! Do you now realise the power of my mantra?â€ť
The letter has raised suspicion that Chandana's death was related to witchcraft.
Neighbours told the police that Chandana was wearing a big vermillion on her forehead, contrary to her usual behaviour.
The Times of India reports that Chandana was a bright student and she had joined a private school this year, after studying in a government school till then.
