In a sad and shocking case, a 14-year-old girl from Kerala's Valanchery town reportedly committed suicide that has left her family and relatives in shock. The girl took this drastic step as she didn't have the facilities to attend the online classes for her Class IX studies.

The deceased has been identified as Devika, who is a resident of Mangeri near Valanchery. She was a student of Government Higher Secondary School in Irimbiliyam.

As per a New Indian Express report, the girl went missing after 4:00 pm on Monday. After desperate search, her body was found at an open place just 100 metres away from the house. 

Along with her body, a kerosene can and a suicide note was also found. Police said the reason behind the death can only be confirmed after complete probe and investigation.  

"The inquest is going on. More details related to the death will only be revealed after the investigation and postmortem," said Shaji M K, Valanchery Circle Inspector.

When the girl's parents were questioned about the incident, they said their daughter might have committed suicide due to the unavailability of facilities in their house to attend the online classes. 

Devika, was a bright student but sadly she could not attend her classes online. As her parents did not have smartphones and the television in their house was under repair. The repair of the TV was delayed because her father was without work for the last three months due to lockdown. 

"She had no other issues. She was a brilliant student and teachers were very proud of her. We told her that we can repair the television soon. Otherwise, the schools might provide you with a tablet computer. But, she was disappointed about the inadequate facilities to take the online classes in the house," said her parents.
