New Delhi: A day after a JNU student allegedly attacked his female classmate on campus leaving her critically injured before committing suicide, police on Thursday said that it may question their friends to ascertain what triggered the attack.

"We have recovered a note from the boy (Akash) in which he has claimed that friends knew what was between him and the girl (Roshni). We may question friends of both Akash and Roshni," said a senior police officer.

Meanwhile, family of Akash also reached Delhi from Bihar today after which his post-mortem was conducted, police said.

Roshni`s brother, who has also reached here, today said that Akash was after his sister for a long time. He also said that her sister was never in a relationship with Akash.
