RBSE Class 12 examination: Student jumps off a building after missing five Physics questions
Jaipur : A Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE) student reportedly committed suicide on Monday allegedly after failing to write five Physics questions. The class 12 boy jumped off the sixth floor of a building located near the Income Tax office in Sikar’s Todinagar around noon.
The student has been identified as a 17-year-old boy from Chandpur village of Sikar district. The cops are suspecting that he failed to handle the exam stress and ended his life in fear that he will not be getting good marks in the examination paper.
Speaking to The Hindustan Times, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) said, “Currently, board exams are going on. Pages of two question papers were sticking with each other. Just 10 minutes before the exam was to finish, he realised that he had left five questions of last page which he was unable to notice as the papers were stuck tight.”
The DSP also informed that the boy requested the teacher to give him extra time, which was given to him. He was reportedly seen depressed after the examination.
On investigation, the police found out that the boy was a meritorious student and had scored 87 per cent marks in 10th RBSE Board Examination.
The cops have now sent the body to a nearby hospital for post-mortem, post that it will be handed over to the family members.
