A student studying Intermediate second year in the Government Junior College in Medak attempted suicide by consuming some poison. The incident took place in Medak on Thursday and the student was stated to be out of danger.

According to Regional Inspecting Officer (RIO) C.P. Gladys, Sumalatha and Mamata are studying Inter second year HEC course in the Government Girls Junior College, Medak. Mamata paid the fee but the college staff listed it on the name of Sumalata and hall ticket was issued for her.

When Mamata approached the college staff for hall ticket they made a correction, collected the hall ticket from Sumalatha, sent the details to Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) and persuaded the officials to issue hall ticket for Mamata. Unhappy about the bungling by the officials Sumalatha attempted suicide by consuming poisonous liquid.

“Sumalatha has not paid the fee but we sent a report to the BIE and will act according to their direction,” Ms. Gladys told The Hindu.
