In yet another tragic incident linked to NEET exam, a 17-year-old girl from Villipuram committed suicide after she failed the exams.

Pratibha, a bright student who had scored 1125 marks in 12th public exam, consumed rat poison after the results were announced on June 4.

The New Indian Express reported that she had appeared for the exam last year also and had cleared it, but did not join as she could not afford the private medical college fees.

Last year, S Anitha, a 17-year-oldĀ medical aspirantĀ from Ariyalur had committed suicide after failing to secure a medical seat as NEET was made compulsory in Tamil Nadu for medical admissions.

A 19-year-old aspirant also committed suicide on Monday by jumping from the 8th floor of a building in Dwarka Sector 12 in New Delhi. He had allegedly failed to clear the exam for the third time.
