These cases become regular in India as a whole. As a Research Scholar,I think high expectation,undeclared competition with fellow mates, career orientation, loss of academic year and family pressure together create more stress among exam candidates. So, there needs caring people at home to cope with the situation. Hope, these things will never happen again.
