Kolkata: A girl student from Kerala studying at SRFTI tried to commit suicide on Friday night. The girl ingested several sleeping pills and became unconscious. The college authorities took her to a private hospital late in the night.
The girl had earlier called her elder sister on the same day and said that she is unable to take on the academic pressure any more.
The girl was a second year student in the institute and is reportedly working on a documentary. Her sister said that she was alarmed by her sister’s attitude and informed the college authorities to check on her during Friday night. She also added that her sister was mentally depressed over academic issues at the college.
College authorities and her family are suspecting that depression might have forced her to take such a drastic step.
