A Class X student died by suicide in Rajasthan's Dholpur district on Wednesday, March 15. His body was discovered today, March 16, morning. According to the police, a suicide note has been recovered, and it appears the student took the extreme step due to exam pressure.

One of the family members of the landlord, identified as Bahadur Singh (70), saw the body hanging in the room and screamed for help. However, when he saw the body hanging, his health suddenly deteriorated and he eventually collapsed, the police informed.
Singh was reported to have died of a heart attack later. Both, his and Rajput's bodies, were kept at a hospital mortuary, Nihalganj Station House Officer (SHO) Vijay Meena said. He added the bodies have been handed over to the family members after post-mortem. A case has been registered under relevant sections of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPc), the police said further, as per PTI.
