When media drew the attention of CT Ravi, Dakshina Kannada district in-charge minister to the circumstances of Sneha’s death, Ravi spoke to Umesh Kumar, sub-inspector, Kavoor, and instructed him to crack down on the source of drugs. On the drug mafia in the region, Ravi said he’d discuss it with the city police chief and inspector-general of police (western range) and direct them to take necessary action.

Teenager ends life at home

MANGALORE: A teenager under treatment for substance addiction hanged herself from a ceiling fan using a sari at her family’s rented house at Padavinangady under Kavoor police station limits on Sunday. Sneha Upadhya, 17, was the elder of two daughters of Gururaj Upadhya and Susheela Upadhya. Her parents had pulled her out from a PU college here to ensure her treatment.
Police said she had tried to end her life on January 10 by consuming around 30 blood pressure tablets prescribed for her father. She was admitted to a private hospital here for treatment and brought home after recovery. Earlier, Sneha’s parents had admitted her to a private deaddiction and counselling centre in Bangalore and she had returned after counsellors felt she was on the recovery path.
Family members said Sneha had asked her parents for Rs 1,500 in cash and a mobile phone on Sunday night. When they refused, Sneha reportedly entered her room in a huff and bolted it. As she had resorted to similar tactics in the past, her parents kept a close watch. Police said Sneha could have ended her life between 1.15am and 6am. Her parents forced open the door in the morning when there was no response from her.
Her parents blamed the free availability of drugs across the city as the main reason for their daughter’s addiction and her death. Sneha, who was a topper till Class 9, started performing erratically thereafter and that aroused her parents’ suspicion that something was amiss. A teary Gururaj urged the authorities concerned to act against the drugs mafia.
