Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu, Nov 22 (UNI) The family members of Chitra, a research student of Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, who allegedly committed suicide, suspect foul play in her death.

''We have absolutely no reason to believe she committed suicide by consuming poison and we want the truth to come out,''R Ramesh, brother of Chitra said when contacted by UNI.

Chitra was normal and did not show any sign of discomfort when she came home for Diwali, he said and rubbished the theory that she could have taken the extreme step following a love failure.

She never gave any indication that she was in love and even if she had, she knew very well the family members would not go against her wishes. She always showed interest in her research work, he added.

When Chitra visited them for Diwali, her family members suggested she get married to which she agreed and asked her parents to look for a suitable groom, claimed Ramesh.

''We do not know what exactly happened. The police have sealed her room in IISc. Only a detailed probe will bring the truth to light,'' he said.

''We want the truth to come out,'' he reiterated, when asked whether the family would demand a CBI probe into her death.

Chitra was a matured girl and would not have committed suicide.

Enquiries with her friends also revealed she had no problem whatsoever, Ramesh said.
