NEET anxiety: Another MBBS aspirant commits suicide
Tamil Nadu: NEET anxiety has now claimed the life of another young medical aspirant. Recently, a 19-year-old NEET aspirant has allegedly committed suicide under the performance pressure in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) exam which is scheduled to be held on September 13th.
According to a recent report by PTI, the body of the student was found floating in a well of the village and the initial inquiry suggested that the boy was anxious about the result of his NEET exam.
The deceased passed the 12th standard two years ago and he was from Elanthankuzhi village in Ariyalur district. The medical student had reportedly cleared NEET the last year also and even scored 370 but could not join medical college despite having cleared the Test earlier. He was trying to improve his score this time around.
One of the police officers confirmed that "he was anxious about the score he could get this time around though he has passed the exam earlier." "He had gone to sleep last night as usual. His family members found him missing from the home early this morning and his body was later found floating in a well in his village," an officer in the district police office informed PTI. However, the police had not found any suicide note from the deceased but the primary inquiry hinted that it was a suicide. The body was sent to a government hospital for autopsy.
This is the second such case in a week where one medical aspirant allegedly put an end to his life unable to cope up with the pressure and anxiety of NEET. Previously, the medical dialogues team reported that a young medical aspirant has committed suicide by hanging himself inside his own rented apartment at Kazipur in Patna.
