Subhashree’s parents were shocked to find her hanging from the ceiling.

Trichy:  In second such incident in Tamil Nadu and fourth since the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance (NEET) results were declared, a 17-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide at her home in Trichy after failing to make the cut. Subashree was rushed to the hospital where doctors failed to revive her. Her father informed the doctors that he found her hanging from the fan in her room.

Subashree had got 94 out of 720 in the NEET exam and had been depressed, her father said. The cut off for open category candidates this year is 119.

When he returned home from work on Wednesday night, he tried to cheer her up, but Subashree locked herself in her room.

We were shocked to find her hanging from the ceiling. We rushed her to the hospital, but doctors declared her brought dead,” Kannan told news agency ANI.
