A 17-year-old student allegedly committed suicide here on Tuesday by shooting himself over his failure to crack the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains test, whose results were announced on Monday. Sahil allegedly used the pistol of his father, a retired army jawan, who is currently working as a security guard at a bank.
This comes just days after 20 students ended their lives following a goof-up in their intermediate examination results.
The student took coaching at Aakash Institute for the JEE test but he failed to qualify. Sahil’s father had scolded him for for not concentrating on his studies. Depressed over his failure and the scolding from his father, Sahil is suspected to have taken the extreme step at his house in the Neredmet neighbourhood.Posted in News, States
