Love-lorn JNU student pens declaration of pain before striking girlfriend

Delhi police officials have recovered a two-page letter, thought to be written by the accused, in the attempt to murder, followed by suicide case at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus.

On Wednesday morning, Akash (23),   a final year student of Korean Language at the School Of Languages in JNU attacked girlfriend Roshni (22) with a cleaver several times, before consuming poison and slitting his own throat. While Akash died, Roshni’s condition is said to be critical.  

Officials investigating the crime, have recovered a letter from the classroom where the incident took place, which they say is in Akash’s handwriting. Officials said Akash has written in the letter, 'Two years ago we met and started a healthy relationship. We started as classmates, became friends and then the friendship turned into a committed relationship. We spent a lot of time together in the campus and outside.’

The letter alleges however, that the relationship later turned bitter and blames Roshni for it. 'You started keeping your distance from me. You stopped communicating the way you used to do. We used to spend quality time in the library, but now whenever I ask you to join me you always have excuses ready,' Akash has written.

The letter adds, 'You have stopped picking up my phone calls and often your mobile is busy. I am tired of this neglect. I loved you....’. Akash goes on to write, 'I need to wind up this matter.’ The letter has been sent for forensic examination to match the handwriting with that in Akash’s notebooks. 'We are waiting for Roshni’s condition to improve to take her statement,’ an official of Vasant Kunj (north) police station said.
