An 18-year-old BA second year student of Delhi University‚Äôs Bharti College,allegedly committed suicide by consuming pesticide in the college‚Äôs washroom on Wednesday morning.When she was taken to a nearby hospital,she was declared dead on arrival.
DCP Vijay Kumar said the student was¬†identified as Vicky Kumari.The family has not made any allegations or suspected foul play behind her death.
Kumari was enrolled in second year BA Programme course in Bharati College. It was her second day into the third semester.After attending a morning lecture,she went to the toilet, when¬†she did not return after half an hour, her classmates went to check on her and found the toilet door bolted from inside.When repeated knocks at the door went unanswered, students alerted college staff.Security guards managed to open the door and found Kumari unconscious with froth oozing out of her mouth.
‚ÄúI thought she fell unconscious.But when we reached the hospital, she was dead,‚Äù Vicky’s father Lok Nath Kumar was quoted as saying.
It is disheartening to see such cases even after depression awareness programs world wide.Those suffering from any kind of depression/loneliness/problem should reach to their family or friends or anyone worth trusting.Life is precious,take care of it.
