Hyderabad: Depressed over the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2018 results, an 18-year-old girl, who scored 95 per cent marks in her class XII and but was unable to get a seat in medical course due to poor NEET score, committed suicide by jumping from a 10-storeyed commercial complex in Abids here on Tuesday. The victim has been identified as Jaslin Kaur, daughter of a businessman.
Her family lives in Barkatpura under Kacheguda police station limits. She pursued her Intermediate from Sri Chaitanya Junior College, Narayanaguda, and underwent coaching for NEET during the last academic year.
According to sources, she was confident on cracking NEET and joining MBBS. However, she did not secure required score to get admission into medicine. On Monday, she cried all day after the announcement of results. Despite her mother consoling her that she can crack the examination next year, she did not become normal.
On Tuesday morning at around 8.45 am, she went out of her home on a bike, on the pretext of going to the gym. At around 10 am, she reached Mayur Kushal Complex in Abids and parked her vehicle near the building. Then, she climbed the 10-storeyed building through the staircase. The girl, who looked nervous, was captured by the CCTV cameras while she was climbing the steps of the building.
After reaching the terrace, she stood on the safety grills. Meanwhile, some onlookers observed her and yelled at her not to jump. She stood on the grills for nearly 15 minutes and leaped to her death after praying to God, an eyewitness said.
Immediately, locals went to her rescue and called in the ambulance but in vain. She was declared dead on the spot. The locals have recorded the visuals of her jumping from the building which went viral on WhatsApp.
Her parents were worried when she did not return home even after 11 am. Then, they approached Kacheguda police to file a complaint but soon they learned about her suicide and rushed to the spot.
“Her parents recognised her. The body was handed over to them after post-mortem,” said K Laxmaiah, Sub-Inspector of Abids.
