In yet another case of suicide for the cause of Telangana [Images], a 18-year-old girl student set herself ablaze in Mahabubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh tonight, police said.

According to police, the deceased identified as Suvarna, a BSc first-year student at a private college in Kothakota town of Mahabubnagar district, attended her classes and returned home by 5.30 pm.

"Suvarna locked herself in a room and lit herself on fire after pouring kerosene," police said based on preliminary investigations.

A suicide note purportedly written by Suvarna, which was found in her room said that she was apprehensive on if Telangana state would be formed or not.

"Our team has gone to the spot and they are investigating the matter," a senior police officer told PTI.

Earlier in the day, a MCA student K Venugopal Reddy (23), reportedly depressed over the delay in formation of separate Telangana state set himself ablaze at the Osmania University (OU) campus in Hyderabad. OU police had booked a case of suspicious death and were further investigating.
