Reportedly, she died due to heavy loss of blood because of her injuries. She was confirmed dead at 3 pm on Tuesday. Police has begun inquiry in the case.

Some students of the college told local media on conditions of anonymity that they suspected Lakshmi was distressed as she had allegedly been verbally abused by one of her professors. The professor, according to the students, was angry with the student for 'studying properly'. However, the dean of the college has denied such allegations.

 There is also a section of students in the college who believe that the suicide could have been over anguish that a close family member was diagnosed with a medical problem.
