Chennai. A 19-year-old student of Salem, preparing for medical, was found dead in his house on Sunday. The incident happened at a time when the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to undergraduate medical courses in various colleges across the country was just a few hours away from being conducted. Police said the deceased student has been identified as S Dhanush and it is suspected that his death was a result of suicide. Police raised the possibility that the student allegedly committed suicide out of fear of failing in his third attempt to clear the NEET exam.
A senior police officer in Salem, who did not wish to be named, said, “We have not found any suicide note, but circumstantial evidence points to suicide out of fear of examination as he had already cleared the NEET exam to get a medical seat. Couldn’t clear it.” The student was found dead in his room in the early hours of Sunday.
