Telangana inter exam 2022: Four students die by suicide following announcement of results
The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education announced the results of Class XI and Class XII exams on Tuesday, June 28
Four students, including three who were studying in intermediate and one SSC student, ended their lives in different parts of Hyderabad on the day the Intermediate results were announced, that is, Tuesday, June 28. Hours after the results were announced, suicides were reported from Saifabad, Meerpet and Kadthal.
M Gowtham Kumar (18) of Saifabad, who completed his Intermediate first year (MPC), scored low marks in the results that were announced. His mother Sangeetha noticed him being upset and consoled him. After ensuring that he was normal, she went out to work.
Sometime later, his grandmother and neighbours noticed Gowtham hanging from the ceiling fan. He was rushed to a hospital but was declared dead.
At Meerpet, A Tagore Hari (18) failed to pass the Intermediate second-year exams. Disappointed after the results, he hanged himself from a ceiling fan at his home.
At Nallakunta thanda near Kadthal of Cyberabad on the city outskirts, Kethavath Praveen (17), an Inter first-year student (BiPC), failed in two subjects. Upset, he hanged himself from a tree at his home.
Late on Monday night, John David, a 16-year-old SSC student from Ramnagar died by suicide. While relatives said he took the extreme step due to fear of failing in the SSC examination, police said that he was upset after his father Narsinga Rao's death a month ago.
Police said David was found hanging at his home while his family members were away.
