As per the words of Bijesh, the CEO of the Dental College, Manasa was staying with three other friends in a house near the dental college.
He told IANS that they came to know of the incident at 3.45 p.m who were told that a youth barged into the house where Manasa was staying and locked the room. It was only after several sounds were heard that the locals came and found out what had happened," said Bijesh.
"The police after speaking to the parents of Manasa said the youth Rakhin hailed from the same place as their daughter in Kannur. There were some issues between the two and he was warned by the police at Kannur in the past. We are not aware of the details of what the issue was between them," Bijesh added.
One of Rakhil's friends told the media that Manasa was not interested in pursuing a relationship that angered Rakhil. At one point, Manasa's family had filed a police complaint against Rakhil.
The police have taken both the bodies to the nearby hospital mortuary and have started a probe to find out the reason behind this incident.
