BARISHAL: A college girl has allegedly committed suicide after failing in mathematics examination in Barishal city.

The deceased was identified as Malia Maria Mouli, 17, a resident of the city. She was a student of class XI of Barishal Govt Women’s College.

Mouli hanged herself at her house in Sher-e-Bangla Nagar road on Sunday noon, said Azimul Karim, OC of Kotwali Model police station.

She was later rushed to Sher-e-Bangla Medical College and Hospital where doctors declared her dead.

Mouli’s father Mosharraf Hossain, also a college teacher, alleged that Mouli did not take any private tuition from math teacher of her college and so she was deliberately given poor marks in the exam.

Meanwhile, Prof Md Asad, the principal of the college, said, “If we find out about private tuitions by the college teachers, it will be informed to the education ministry.”

“We will investigate the matter if any complaint is lodged by the family,” said the OC.
