Breaking the door down, they found their daughter lying dead on the floor, having consumed a bottle of pesticide.
Bharati was a final-year student at Don Bosco Engineering College on Mysore Road. She was to graduate in another month, and her parents had told her that they were planning to get her married. However, Bharati objected to this as she reportedly wanted to continue studying.
