Gurgaon, April 24 (IANS) A MBA student Tuesday committed suicide by hanging herself in her hostel room in the Amity University Pachgaon here after a teacher accused her of cheating and tore her exam paper, police said.
Dayna, a 1st year MBA student in the Amity University Pachgaon, situated on National Highway 8, hanged herself after she was reportedly humiliated by an invigilator, one of the students said.
A student from the same university, on condition of anonymity, told IANS that Dayna was writing her examination Tuesday when a teacher accused her of cheating.
When she protested, the invigilator took her answer sheet and tore it up.
Dayna, who was from Meghalaya, immediately rushed to her room in the hostel and hanged herself.
