Patna: A 22-year old student of government polytechnic college in Digha reportedly committed suicide early Saturday morning by jumping from a four-storied building under Pataliputra Colony police station in Patna.
Rukmini Mishra, after securing 80% in her third semester exams, a respectable score by most standards, decided to end her life by jumping from the terrace of the hostel she used to live in Indrapuri, police said.
The incident occurred sometime between 2:00 am and 5:00 am on Saturday, her two roommates said.
Her parents and roommates said that Rukmini was upset over her 80% marks as she was expecting to score much higher in the third semester exams.
Chandra Bhushan Mishra and Sunaina Mishra, the parents of Rukmini, said that the results came out on Friday after which she called home and told her parents about securing 80% in the exams. “She sounded frustrated with her score and we tried to mollify her but apparently that did not work,” the father said.
The body was sent to the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) for an autopsy after which it was handed over to the family members, Pataliputra station in-charge R K Dubey said.
