The Supreme Court has refused to stay the CBI probe into Tamil Nadu’s Lavanya suicide case. On the petition of the Tamil Nadu government, the Supreme Court has also issued notice to the petitioner and the CBI, who filed a petition in the Madras High Court regarding this matter. The Supreme Court directed both the parties to file their replies within four weeks.

The court said that it would not be right on our part to interfere in the CBI investigation at this stage. The Tamil Nadu government has filed a petition against the Madras High Court’s order for a CBI inquiry into the matter. Lavanya’s family had accused the Tamil Nadu police of covering up the case. Lavanya committed suicide by accusing her school of pressurizing her to become a Christian.

Let us inform that in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, class 12 student Lavanya committed suicide by consuming poison. The student, who was studying in Sacred Heart Higher Secondary School Tirukattupali, was being pressured to convert. When the girl refused, she started being harassed. School officials said that if you want to study in school, you have to become a Christian. Tired of this harassment, the girl committed suicide.

The girl student was staying at St Michael’s Girls Hostel near the school for the last 5 years. It is being told that the government-aided Christian Missionary School canceled her leave after the student refused to convert. She wanted to go to her home in Pongal. Along with this she was forced to do chores like cleaning the school toilets, washing dishes. Upset, Lavanya consumed the pesticides used in the school garden on January 9. When his health deteriorated, his family members were called and told to take him home. The relatives admitted him to the Government Medical College Hospital in Tanjore, where he succumbed to his injuries on January 19 during treatment. In this case, the Madras High Court had ordered to hand over the case of Lavanya’s suicide to the CBI. Lavanya’s family members have alleged conversion, while the police have not mentioned conversion in the FIR.
