Maharashtra: Nursing student attempts suicide, cites mental stress | Aurangabad News – Times of India


AURANGABAD: A final-year student at a private nursing college in the city attempted suicide and left behind a note claiming that he was taking the extreme step as he was fed up with the alleged harassment by the college and the mental stress he was going through. He, however, stated that no one should be blamed for his act.
Sahil Lavhare attempted suicide sometime on Friday evening by consuming liquid mosquito repellent. He was admitted to a hospital and is out of danger.
The student, in the letter, claimed that he was never keen on pursuing a course in nursing, but his family had forced him to take admission and complete the course. He blamed his family for readily accepting the negative feedback given about him by the college. The college administration has refuted the allegations.
“In the first year, Sunil took scholarship fees, which the college was allegedly reluctant to give him. This friction continues till date,” said his acquaintance Sanjay Malani.
Soon after the incident came to light, other students and members of a political party gathered in front of the college and staged a protest.
When contacted, Satara area police station inspector Surendra Malale said, “The student allegedly consumed liquid mosquito repellent and got himself admitted to the hospital, where his condition is said to be out of danger.”
The officer said that the agitating students and the college’s staff sat down to resolve the matter. It was found that the students were asked to complete and submit their tutorials and submit them before the stipulated time, or warned of action.
Later, the college’s administrative officer refuted the allegations made by the student who consumed poison as well as the agitating students, and said that college will carry out an independent probe in this case.
