After scoring 6 marks in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), a Madhya Pradesh teenager ended her life at her house in Chhindwara district. 18-year-old, Vidhi Suryavanshi was shocked after getting only 6 marks in NEET 2020 exam. Her parents tried to cheer Vidhi as her OMR sheet revealed she had scored 590 marks in the entrance test held for medical aspirants.
Despite being told by parents that she had got 590 marks, the acutely depressed teenager hanged herself in the house on October 20. “Vidhi was found hanging to death in her house on Tuesday. The family reported the matter the next day. Primary probe suggests that less marks in the NEET triggered the suicide, but further investigations are underway,” said Parasiya police station in-charge Sumer Singh Jagte.
The National Testing Agency NTA has already released the NEET provisional answer keys of all the sections of the NEET test and NEET OMR sheets of candidates. The reported case which is being probed by the Parasiya police in Chhindwara district was highlighted by Congress MP Nakul Nath on the social media platform Facebook.
Nakul Nath, the first-time MP, posted about the horrific incident on Facebook “How can such a serious lapse be allowed to happen in such national entrance test and it’s result. I appeal the government to immediately take cognizance of the matter and take stringent action against those found responsible for the grave lapse,” the Chhindwara MP wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday.
