Udbaid Hussain Thangal , MLA, said that the student was a victim of lack of foresightedness due to which she was unable to complete the homework assigned. The online session was named “first bell” and was telecast under state general education . The timings for the classes were scheduled at 8:30 am to 5:30 pm . After the investigation, Police confirmed that death was a suicide case.
There could be more cases for such reason in small areas where students are not able to get education. But taking such brutal step is not at all appropriate and they should find out an optimistic way for their problems.
