The incident took place on Wednesday evening, a little after Langhi checked her marks online along with friends and realised that she had failed. “She was worried about going home, and once she got back, she was crying inconsolably. Her mother tried to console her,” said an official from the Kalyan Government Railway Police, requesting anonymity. Langhi is believed to have killed herself as she did not want to face her father.
