Exam stress claims another student in the Capital
New Delhi, Mar 4 (UNI) Ridden by examination stress, a class tenth student today committed suicide by hanging himself at his Malviya Nagar residence in South Delhi.
Abhishek Gautam, son of Lalit Kumar, a student of Government Senior Secondary School, R K Puram, was found hanging from the ceiling of his room in Khirki Extension area of Malviya Nagar early today by his father, according to sources.
Last midnight Abhishek had wished his parents on their wedding anniversary and had gone to his room. He had not done well in his English paper. He had failed last year.
In a suicide note, he said that he was weak in science but had taken the subject because his father wanted him to pursue it. His physics and chemistry papers were approaching and he was not confident of doing well, hence this extreme step, the note said.
Abhishek's father Lalit Kumar, an employee of Jawaharlal Nehru University, had taken voluntary retirement sometime back.
