A 17-year-old student of Ghaziabad Public School consumed sulphas tablets after she was pulled up by her school manager for performing badly in her exams.

Umang, a student of class XI, was reportedly humiliated by her school manager CS Yadav after she failed in her exams.

Yadav not only reprimanded her before her father and brother but also allegedly slapped her. She was depressed over the incident. On Monday, she consumed sulphas pills.

Her parents had gone out for some work when the incident happened. The Kotwali Police have recovered a suicide note from her possession in which she has held Yadav responsible for the extreme step.

Kamal Kishore Jindal, Umang's father, said that he will report the matter to the police and see that the school manager is punished. However, CS Yadav denied the allegations.

"It is completely wrong. I don't know why she committed suicide," he said.

“Till now I have not got any complaint against CS Yadav. The hospital where Umang was treated sent a notice to Yadav on Monday. Action will be taken against the accused only after we receive a complaint from the parents,” said YP Ahlawat of the Kotwali station.
