Unable to cope with the exam pressure, a II pre-university student hanged herself at her home in Kaverinagar on Saturday.

The Mahadevapura police said Jamuna Rani (18), student of Jain College in Indiranagar, was depressed that she did not do well in two papers and had discussed it with her parents.

She had prepared for Saturday’s accountancy exam the day before but ended her life. Her father, Muniraju, a civil contractor, was away from Bangalore; her mother, Jayanthi, a garment unit employee, was at work; and her brother had left to answer his exam.

It was the brother who found her body when he came home. Neighbours rushed her to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Harassed woman

Fed up with her dysfunctional marriage, a flower vendor hanged herself in Bhuvaneshwarinagar on Saturday. Kavitha (28), mother of two, was married to Manjunath, a lorry driver, who the police said was an alcoholic and would harass her often.

Based on a complaint by Kavitha’s family, the Rajagopalanagar police have taken up the case.

Cyclist killed
