Amity student commits suicide

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Apparently depressed at being marked absent in an examination in which he had appeared and scored good marks, a 21-year-old student of Amity School of Technology and Management in Gurgaon allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in his house at Farsh Bazar in East Delhi on Thursday.

According to the police, the incident came to light when parents of Harsh Khatri, a resident of Farsh Bazar, woke up this morning and found him hanging from the ceiling. Subsequently, the police were informed. A suicide note was also recovered from the spot.

In the note, Harsh purportedly wrote that he had appeared in a particular examination in the first semester but a teacher marked him absent for unexplained reasons. Later, he applied for re-checking of records.

As per the note, it was found that Harsh had indeed appeared in that examination and scored over 66 per cent marks. However, the note further said that he was asked to re-appear in the paper.

It was also alleged in the note that the institute did not pay heed to repeated requests of his father, a bank official, to revoke the notice for re-appearing. Depressed by the manner in which the episode unfolded in the past few months, Harsh allegedly decided to end his life.

The police said the inquest proceedings in the case have been initiated. They added that the contents of the note would be verified and any further action would be taken accordingly.
