In an unfortunate incident, a class XI Hyderabad girl who was punished by her school for not paying Rs 2,000 fee, committed suicide at her house in Malkajgiri on Thursday. The girl was reportedly made to stand outside the class for failing to pay fee when she went to school on Thursday to appear for her examinations. She was allegedly not allowed to write the exam either and was depressed over this. After the girl reached home, she hung herself from the ceiling of her house.

When this incident took place, her parents were reportedly not at home. When they came back after work, they found the girl hanging from the ceiling and alerted the police, who recovered a note purportedly written by her. Police have already registered a case against the school management and the body was shifted to Gandhi hospital for postmortem. According to the information provided by police, the note found next to the girl said, “They didn’t allow me to write the exam. Sorry, Mom.”

Last year in September, the principal of a private school at Tappachabutra near Hyderabad was booked for allegedly beating a seven-year-old boy studying in Class 2. The boy’s mother who was a teacher at the same school told reporters that her son was beaten up by school Principal Suresh Singh. “The principal wrote some words on the board in the classroom and when the child was not able to read the words he was beaten up by him on his back. We have lodged a case with police,” she had said.

Back then, the Tappachabutra Police had registered a case under sections 341 (wrongful restraint) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of IPC against the principal. The incident had led to protests in the city, with NGO ‘Balala Hakkula Sangham’ demanding an immediate cancellation of school’s recognition.
