In yet another incident which served as a chilling reminder of the murder of Infosys employee Swathi in Chennai, a 19-year-old engineering student was bludgeoned to death by a former student of the college in her own classroom in Karur.

According to reports, Sonali, who was a third year civil engineering student at the Karur Engineering College on the Karur-Erode road, was with her friends in the classroom on Tuesday morning when 21-year-old Udhayakumar, a former student and known to be her friend, came to the classroom to meet her. They had a conversation before an argument broke out, and an angry Udhayakumar picked up a broken wooden log nearby and started beating her with it.

He also attacked a professor and some other students who came to Sonali’s rescue. 

Sonali was found in a pool of blood in her classroom, and was later rushed to the hospital where she died.

Udhayakumar has been arrested.

TOI reports, “For the past 10 days, Udhayakumar had been at his native place at Velloor near Paramakudi in Ramanathapuram district.From there he tried to speak to Sonali, but could not.

Angered by her sudden change, he came to Karur and straightaway went to the college and confronted the girl.”
