Laharni Debbarma, a student of Auxilium Girls’ School had committed suicide on May 25 after allegedly being accused of theft by the security guards and officials of Big Bazaar.
Reportedly, the deceased student, who had gone to shop with her friends, was accused of stealing items from the shopping mall by the guards after they spotted a bag in her hand.
