A Class XII girl tried to commit suicide in her school toilet on Thursday in Tindivanam by trying to slit her throat using a razor blade. She was reportedly unhappy over her academic performance.
Meena hails from Neikuppi village near Tindivanam and was studying at a government-aided girls senior secondary school in Tindivanam. Her father, Arumainathan is the panchayat secretary of Venmaniyathur village, according to The New Indian Express.
On Thursday, her father dropped her to school and she was supposed to give a class test. She went to the classroom, kept her bag and went to the toilet. The teacher could not find her class during the attendance, so they started searching for her. She was found unconscious inside a toilet with injuries on her throat. She was immediately taken to the Mundiamappakam Government Hospital.
Director Education Officer (DEO) carried out an inquiry in the school. Meanwhile, parents gathered outside the school claiming that there was a mystery behind the student being injured. They also blocked the DEO but the official was able to calm them, reported by TNIE.
Arumainathan told the police that his daughter was fine when he dropped her to school. In the evening, when the girl regained consciousness she told the police she was performing poorly in studies and had taken the blade from home to slit her throat. However, the girlâ€™s father has filed a police complaint.
