A 20-year-old student of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur (SGTB) Khalsa College allegedly tried to end her life by jumping off the third floor of the computer block on Monday. The woman, a second-year student of Bachelor of Computer Science Engineering, suffered three fractures, but is out of danger, police said. She is a resident of Faridabad.
The incident took place around 1 pm. Students and teachers as well as the principal rushed her to Hindu Rao hospital. She was later shifted to the Sushruta Trauma Centre.
Police found a suicide note on her, which reportedly said she was unable to cope with studies. Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Madhur Verma said, “In the note, she said she was too dependent on her friends for studies and that she felt like a loser, which was why she wanted to end her life. But her classmates said she secured about 75 per cent and was doing fairly well. She was allegedly depressed, but she is out of danger. No case has been registered,” he said.
Prof J M Khurana, Students’ Welfare Dean at Delhi University, refused to comment.
