Ariyalur student suicide case transferred to CBI, Madurai bench of Madras High Court Judge GR Swaminathan. A 17-year-old student from Ariyalur, who was studying at Michaelpatti Sacred Heart High School near Thanjavur, committed suicide by drinking pesticides.

The complaint alleges that the student committed suicide after the school administration forced her to convert. However, the school administration denied the allegation outright.

The student Lavanya is said to have committed suicide due to harassment by the hostel warden. The student allegedly committed suicide after being harassed by hostel warden Mary for telling her to clean the hostel premises. Sister Mary has already been arrested.

The same complaint was made in the student's confession to the magistrate. At the same time, it was also said that the school administration forced the student to convert. That is why it has been reported that she committed suicide. Similarly, the student's confession video was released on the internet and caused a stir.

The student's parents complained that the student's death was suspected and that the school administration had pressured her to change her religion. Also, the police investigation into the death of the student is not correct. Muruganantham, the student's father, had filed a case in the Madurai branch of the Madras High Court seeking an order for the CBI to investigate the Lavanya case.  

After hearing all the arguments, Judge GR Swaminathan today (Jan. 31) transferred the case of student suicide to the CBI. BJP state president Annamalai welcomed the court order. Following this, Tamil Nadu BJP leader Annamalai has tweeted, "Lavanya case handed over to CBI. Thankful to Madurai High court for standing for Justice. #NationWithLavanya."
