Allegedly worried over failing in the upcoming Board examinations, a class 10 student committed suicide on Saturday by jumping in front of a train in Eluru.
The victim was identified as Kada Haritha (15).
She was a resident of the southern street in Eluru and studied at the Kasturba Municipal Corporation Girls High School.
Reportedly, Haritha was poor at studies, and her parents were worried about it. Relatives say that she feared appearing for the class 10 board exam and hence might have taken the extreme step.
The girl’s body was found on the railway track near the jute mill in the evening.
The body was sent for autopsy and later handed over to her parents, reported The Hans India.
Recently, in a similar incident in Hyderabad, a pharmacy student committed suicide fearing exams.
The victim took BP tablets in excess and succumbed while undergoing treatment.
In another incident, an engineering student from Guntur was found dead at a hotel in Eluru on Sunday.
Police suspect that the deceased, MS Venkata Vamsikrishna, could have committed suicide due to depression after his mother passed away recently.
According to The Hans India, Vamsikrishna checked into Grand Arya Hotel in Narsaraopeta two days ago and later did not come out of the room.
Despite knocking on the door, he did not open it, following which the management complained to the police.
After breaking open the door, Vamsikrishna was found hanging from the ceiling.
Police recovered a suicide note from the room which said, “Mom, I am coming to you. All should live in happiness. No one is responsible for my death.”
Vamsikrishna’s mother had died after she got electrocuted accidentally while trying to heat the water.
The victim was doing his III-year B Tech from Sir CR Reddy Engineering College and stayed in a hostel.
