He accused Kapoor of incessantly harassing his daughter, pushing her to take the extreme step. She had also left behind a suicide note, blaming her boyfriend for her decision to end her life.

They broke up a few months ago, following which she wanted him to delete her pictures in his mobile phone. But he was harassing her, police said.

The student’s body was handed over to her parents after autopsy at GMCH, Sector 32.
