A class 10 student ended his life by hanging himself in a rented room due to exam pressure in Rajasthan’s Dholpur district while his landlord died of a heart attack after seeing the body hanging, police said Thursday.
The incident took place at Madhavanand colony in Dholpur where Pushpendra Rajput (17) lived as a tenant and studied in a private school, police said.
He had returned from his village on Wednesday and committed suicide in the night, police said.
One of the family members of the landlord, identified as Bahadur Singh (70), saw the body hanging in the room and screamed for help. When Singh saw the body hanging, his health suddenly deteriorated and he eventually collapsed, police said.
