TN student who fought against NEET kills self

Fazana Karim's* class teacher allegedly made her lift her salwar up to check the stain and gave her a duster cloth to use as a pad

Last year, in a call for common entrance test, NEET has replaced the All India Pre Medical Test and other tests conducted by private institution.

Anitha, a seventeen years old student, who had filed a petition against the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET), on Friday made a decision to end her life. Anitha had secured 1,176 out of 1,200 marks in class XII.

However, she just scored 86 out of 720 marks in the NEET examination, failing to get a chance in medical examination, media reports said. Since the NDA government and the present AIADMK government could not keep up their promise of getting exemption from NEET for Tamil Nadu students, Anitha's death was promptly blamed on them by her parents and the state's opposition parties. Her alleged suicide has generated widespread protest and condemnation against state and central governments. This year too, the State government sought exemption and the Legislative Assembly passed amendments to continue the existing practice in medical college admissions. Her father and four brothers were not home when she resorted to the extreme step. Students do get three attempts for NEET.

When senior advocate Nalini Chidambaram moved the Supreme Court against NEET recently, representing Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students seeking admissions to medical courses on the basis of NEET scores, Anitha, a Tamil Nadu board student, impleaded herself as a respondent. She even went all the way to Delhi to represent many aspirants like her The Sendurai Police have registered a case. "One can always prepare well and get through next year", he said, asking students to refrain from succumbing to depression.


Her parents had no idea why she took her life until they found a suicide note which reads: "Amma please forgive me, I don't see any other way".

"I don't know what NEET is, and my father who has done his best to give me a good education, can not afford NEET coaching classes", Anitha said then.

Anitha's suicide was the third suicide of a student reported in the last 24 hours after a college student near Madurai and another University student in Puducherry had committed suicide after taking part in the Blue Whale challenge.
