A 15-year-old girl who had jumped off the third floor of her school building in Kerala’s Kollam city last week died on Monday.
The Kollam Police had booked two teachers for abetting the suicide on Friday. Her family had alleged that the girl was harassed and told that she would not be allowed to write her board exams, The News Minute reported.
However, there are conflicting reports on what prompted the girl to take the step. There are reports that suggested she jumped off after her teachers allegedly scolded her for fighting with her younger sister’s classmate. Her sister studies in Class 8 in the same school. She had reportedly also objected to her younger sister being punished for talking in class and got into an argument with some teachers, according to NDTV.
