HYDERABAD: A class 10 student of a private school in Neredmet killed herself on Thursday after she was asked to drop out of school for failing to pay Rs 3,000 fee.
According to the complaint filed by the family, 16-year-old Yashashwini, daughter of labourers from Kakatiya Nagar in Neredmet, was depressed since she was forced to discontinue her studies.
“The parents were facing financial crisis and couldn’t afford the fee. A few days ago, the school informed the girl that she will not be allowed to attend classes,” said Neredmet inspector A Narasimha Swamy, adding, “The family did not make any mention of harassment by school staff.”
On Thursday evening, the teenager hanged herself in her house while her parents were away at work. “When her parents returned, they found the house locked. They broke the latch of the door and found her hanging by a rope. There was no suicide note,” the inspector said.
A case of suspicious death has been registered under Section 174 of CrPC and the girl’s body shifted for post-mortem.
