Social media has erupted with anger, seeking justice for a young medical student from Godda (near Hazaribagh, Jharkhand) who went missing and was later found dead. She had left for an exam in the morning but never reached college. Reports like the one below say her phone was switched off for most part of the day. Her mother, who normally spoke with her at lunch time, couldn’t reach her either.
