BANGALORE: According to the parents of Priyanka and Sonali, who jumped into Sankey lake, seven girls of Mary Immaculate High School, Lakkasandra, were made to stand outside the staff room for playing Holi on Monday.
“There was a special class on Monday. Many girls played Holi near the school, and authorities were unhappy with them. On Tuesday, seven girls, including Priyanka and Sonali, were punished. The school management called us around noon saying Priyanka and Sonali were missing,” a relative of one of the girls told TOI.
The bodies were shifted to the Ramaiah Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
A case has been registered at the Sadashivanagar police station. DCP (Central) BR Ravikantegowda told TOI they will summon the school authorities. “I will not make any statement until the investigation is over,” he said.
Priyanka was a resident of Dairy Circle, Adugodi, while Sonali was from Tavarekere in Ramanagaram district. Priyanka’s father Janardhan is a messenger at the Adugodi fire station; Sonali’s father Dayanand Sagar is a cab driver with an educational institution. Both are survived by parents and elder brothers.
