In a shocking incident, a Hyderabad teen allegedly hung herself at her Malkajgiri residence on Tuesday evening.
Reportedly, the 14-year-old, a class IX student at Jyothi High School, was not allowed to sit for her examination as she had been unable to pay her school fee. A note was recovered by the police from near the body which read, “They didn’t allow me to write the exam. Sorry, Mom.”
While speaking to ANI, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Malkajgiri, Uma Maheshwar said, “The 14-year-old student of Jyothi High School committed suicide by hanging herself in her residence.”
“After returning from school, the girl complained that her class teacher did not allow her to give exam and insulted her for not paying fees,” he added.
Following the incident, Hyderabad’s Medchal-Malkajgiri District Education Officer (DEO) decided on submitting a report to the School Education Department Commissioner on Friday. The DEO’s decision was followed by a preliminary investigation and is expected to submit the report, seeking a cancellation of recognition of the Jyothi High School, on Friday evening.
A case has also been registered under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 306 (Abetment of suicide).
