Nine-year-old Okhla girl attempts suicide; reason behind it will leave you stumped.
During exams children are under stress to perform and at times minors and even youths crack under pressures. Something like this happened with a nine-year-old girl, who according to police, allegedly attempted suicide at her home in Bharat Nagar area.
The reason behind her move is yet to be ascertained but it is suspected that she might be scared of failing in examinations, they said.
The report pointed out that it was on March 21 when the incident took place when the girl and her brother were alone at their home. Police said the girl asked her 10-year-old boy to go out of the room on the pretext of changing clothes and then she allegedly tried to hang herself.
When she didn’t come out for a long time, her brother raised an alarm and managed to alert his family and neighbours, police said reported PTI.
The girl was rushed a hospital where she is recuperating.
The news has left residents shocked, who suggested that it is important to give counseling students and make sure not to mount undue pressure on them for improving their performance. Residents suggested regular monitoring of children during exam time and giving them pithy advice how to manage show without being under stress.
