The cases of suicides are rising in Goa by the day. It is further shocking that most of the cases involve the young students. In one such recent case a student from Keri-Pernem hanged himself to death. Why did he take this drastic step and who is responsible for this? Read the complete report here.
This information is based on the news published by the local daily HERALDO. According to that, a 17-year-old student from Keri in Pernem Taluka hanged himself fearing that he may have to repeat the Class IX for one more year. The student had failed in one subject last year and he had to repeat the examination.
According to the information revealed by the sources, the results of Class IX were due on Saturday but due to some reason it was postponed and out of fear that he would fail this year too, he took this drastic step. “The school in which he studied was expected to issue results of students today (Saturday). But it was postponed. Allegedly fearing he would fail the class this year too, he took this extreme step,” Pernem PI Sanjay Dalvi said.
The sources said that when the parents went searching for the boy on Friday night they saw him hanging on from the ceiling of the outhouse. “The boy was found hanging in the outhouse on Friday night. His parents began to search for their son when he was not found around. They saw him hanging to the ceiling later,” Dalvi said. Police said that parents did not suspect any foul play in this case but there is no suicide note found.
What a drastic step to be taken for such a small thing. This is the system we bring our children up!!! There is no doubt that the now-a-day parents burden their children with big expectations of their own. Perhaps, this rat race which makes the young generation takes these drastic steps. Please do leave your comments on this very serious issue.
