Unable to score the marks she expected, a 17-year-old SSC student allegedly committed suicide on Monday evening by immolating herself at her suburban Mulund house, police said.
Rajlaxmi Muthu, a resident of Vaani High School, Mulund, immolated herself at her house at Shivshakti Chawl in Indira Nagar of Mulund, police said.
She was rushed to a private hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.
Rajlaxmi, police sources said, scored 52 per cent marks. She had expected to pass in the first division. She appeared depressed ever since her results were announced on Monday afternoon, but family members told police that they never imagined she would resort to such an extreme step.
