Hyderabad: A 20-year-old B.Tech student allegedly committed suicide by setting herself on fire at her house in Shankarpally area here, police said on Sunday. She was apparently upset after her mother questioned her over continuously talking and chatting on the phone, they said.

The young woman, who was a second year student of B.Tech course, doused herself in kerosene and set herself on fire on Saturday when no one was present at her house, said Shankarpally police station inspector N Lingaiah. She died on the spot.

"On Friday, her mother asked her over her regular talking and chatting on phone suspecting that she is talking to her boyfriend. The mother took away the phone and found that her daughter was using a new SIM card, following which an argument ensued between them", Lingaiah said, adding that no suicide note was found.

The deceased was staying with her mother and brother. A case has been registered under section 174 of CrPC.
