Accused of cheating, MBA student hangs herself

gurgaon Updated: Apr 25, 2012 11:32 IST

An MBA student on Tuesday committed suicide by hanging herself in her hostel room in Amity University Pachgaon after a teacher accused her of cheating and tore her exam paper, police said.

Dayna, a 1st year MBA student in the Amity University Pachgaon, situated on National Highway 8, committed suicide after she was reportedly humiliated by an invigilator, one of the students said.

A student from the same university, on condition of anonymity, told IANS that Dayna was writing her examination on Tuesday when a teacher accused her of cheating.

When she protested, the invigilator took her answer sheet and tore it up.

Dayna, who was from Meghalaya, immediately rushed to her room in the hostel and hanged herself.

When her roommate returned she saw her hanging. Teachers tried to veil the incident.

"We just came to know about the incident, our investigation is on," a police officer said.

Dayna was an intelligent student, one of her friends said.

A student of the institute alleged that many times they were threatened by their teachers with mark cuts and suspension without any reason.
