A 19-Yea-old first-year student of Indian Law Society's Law College committed suicide in his room allegedly after failing the exams Saturday. Hundreds of ILS students met the principal Tuesday alleging error in the evaluation of answer sheets.
Saumitra Dhoble was on vacation in his hometown Nagpur when the results were declared. "His sister and I had gone out when the incident happened. His parents called him but he didn't reply. Then his father went up to his room, which is on the first floor. The room was locked from inside. He broke open the window and saw Saumitra's body hanging from the fan. With the help of neighbours, he took him to the nearest hospital where he was declared dead on arrival," said Mahendra Balpande, Saumitra's brother-in-law.
Saumitra apparently got five marks in English and 0 in history.
"This has been happening since we were in the first year. After revaluation, the marks get increased. But for a single paper's revaluation, we have to pay above Rs 700. Some times, there is even a 20-mark increase. At time, almost all students' marks are increased, at other times no one's marks go up," said a third-year student.
