Taking serious view of the suicide of Sailu, a first year student of Kranthi Junior College, Jogipeta in Medak district, because he did not get his hall-ticket, the Board of Intermediate Education has issued a show cause notice to Sangameswar, principal of the college.

It is said that the student was not issued his hall-ticket because he had not cleared his college special fee dues. All principals of private colleges were instructed not to withhold hall-tickets of students on the pretext of non-clearance of college dues. Such incidents would be viewed seriously, the release added.
