A class X girl committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan at her rented house in Radha Bhawan in west Rajapurpul in the city on Friday afternoon.
A student of St Dominic Savio High School, Praia Mrinalini alias Nishi, 17, was to take her final exams later this year. Her father Baiju Prasad works for a private firm while her mother Archana Prasad is a teacher in a private school. The family lives in a 2 room’s accommodation in the double storied house of one Satyendra Kumar Singh.
A wailing Archana said she returned from her school around 2pm and found door bolted from inside. As Nishi did not respond to repeated knocks on the door, she peeped into the house from the ventilator and saw teen hanging.
In her suicide note, Priya has urged her father to look after family properly; she also hoped Nicky would do well in his studies.
This was 3rd incident of suicide by incidents in the capital since Tuesday. Patna Medical College’s first year student Sunny Kumar Roshan hanged himself in his room in a private lodge on Tuesday while Ashwini Pratap Singh, a 30 yr-old M-Tech student in Mumbai, committed suicide at his Patna residence on Wednesday night. It is very sad that students committing suicide instead of facing challenges of times.
