Unhappy with exam results, 16-year-old girl from Nashik commits suicide
Sakshi Bendkule, a Class 10 student from Nashik, had cleared her SSC exams, but was unhappy with the results which were below her expectations
Apparently not satisfied with her Class 10 marks, a 16-year-old girl from Nashik, allegedly committed suicide, police said today.
Sakshi Eknath Bendkule, a resident of Panchavati, hanged herself in her house yesterday afternoon, hours after the Maharashtra Board's class 10 exam results were declared, a police official said.
Bendkule, student of a local school, had cleared the SSC (Class 10) exams by obtaining 56 percent marks - well below the 80 percent she was expecting, he said.
Soon after she came to know her marks, the teenager went to one of the rooms of her house and hanged herself, the official said. She was rushed to the Nashik Civil Hospital, where doctors declared her dead, the police added.
The girl's family is in a state of shock.
Her father Eknath Bendkule said the family members were satisfied with Sakshi Bendkule's result and they had even congratulated her for clearing the exams held in March.
Sakshi Bendkule's marks were below her expectations and this may have led her to take the extreme step, he said.
