New Delhi, March 12 (IANS) A class 6 student committed suicide Wednesday by hanging himself in his house here, apparently after failing in his school examinations, the police said. Sairal Lawrence, 14, ended his life at his Vansant Vihar home in southwest Delhi after his results were announced in the afternoon.

Though no suicide note was recovered, it seemed that he took the extreme step after his parents scolded him over his failure in the exams, a police official said.

D. Lawrence, Sairal’s father, works as a gardener in the same locality, he added.

“We have registered a case and are investigating the matter. The victim’s body has been sent for a post-mortem examination,” the official said.
