A girl student of a residential school attempted suicide late on Friday.

According to Patancheru Circle Inspector Ravinder Reddy, G. Neeraja (15), a native of Gorrekal village in Pulkal mandal has been studying in the Government Girls Residential School at Isnapur in Medak district. As the final examinations were approaching, the school was conducting examinations at frequent intervals and Neeraja reportedly failed to reach expectations. Unable to bear the pressure, she consumed hair dye before going to sleep.
