In an appalling incident, a girl student of a government-run university attempted to commit suicide by consuming toilet cleaner because as per the reports, she was upset over getting humiliated by her faculty over her academic performance.
According to media reports, the student was pursuing MSc Geology at Bharathidasan University. She was found unconscious in her hostel room Friday night by her roommates and rushed to the government hospital, where her condition was said to be stable.
The report further added, the teacher had frequently ‘harassed’ the girl over her performance in class, following which 30 students protested against the faculty. The teacher has been called in for questioning, they added.
