Dalit girl who filed case against NEET commits suicide

State Board student who filed a case in the Supreme Court against National Eligibility cum  Entrance Test (NEET) for medical admissions, has reportedly hanged herself to death at her house at Kuzhumur village near Sendurai on Friday.

S.Anitha (17), a Dalit girl, daughter of a daily wage labourer, was alone at her house and took the extreme step apparently dejected over not being able to get a MBBS seat.

She had scored 1,176 out of 1,200 marks in Class XII and had a cut off of 196.75 for medicine. But she got only 86 marks in the NEET examination. She could not secure MBBS seat as NEET score was the basis for medical counselling this year.

She had impleaded herself as one of the respondents in the Supreme Court challenging the NEET.

“I want to be a doctor and I will be assured of a seat if the admission is based on Plus Two marks,” the teenager told to the media then.
