In a shocking incident, three girl students of a private college allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a well, owing to the 'exorbitant' college fees collected from them.

There were also complaints of lack of amenities, reportedly.

The deceased girls have been identified as second year students, V Priyanka, T Monisha and E Saranya.

The girls had allegedly tied themselves together with a dupatta and had later jumped into a farm well near the college.

The bodies were retrieved by police and fire brigade personnel and sent to a government hospital for autopsy, sources state.

Anxiety and tension prevailed in the area as residents, students and parents gathered at the spot of the incident.

They protested against the college and paid respects to the dead students, foreign media reports.
