According to the victim’s mother Sharanamma Doddamani, their 14-year-old daughter Pavitra, a class VIII student, went to school like any other day on February 24 but did not return home.
Pavitra was staying with her grandmother in Hittal Shiroor village. She lost her father 14 years ago and her mother Sharanamma has migrated to Bengaluru to work as daily wage labourer.
