A 17-year-old girl who was found dead at her home in Tamil Nadu’s Villupuram district on Monday is suspected to have killed herself by consuming poison after she failed in NEET 2018, the nationwide examination to select students for undergraduate medical and dental courses.

S Prathiba was a resident of Peruvallur village in Gingee taluk. V Murugesan, a neighbour, said Prathiba had cleared the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) last year and qualified for studying traditional medicine Siddha . “She declined that and appeared for NEET again for the second time this year as she was firm in her dream to be a MBBS doctor,” said Murugesan.

Prathiba’s father Shanmugotam is a farmer and her mother Amutha is a farm worker. After Prathiba got 495 marks out of 500 in Tamil Nadu’s junior school exam, her father admitted her in a private school for her Class 12 education so that she had a better chance in pursuing of her dream of being a doctor.

Neighbours said Prathiba looked upset after NEET results were declared Monday and her parents advised her not to worry. Prathiba collapsed Monday night after consuming rat poison kept in her home, said the police. Her family took her to the Tiruvannamalai Government Hospital where doctors declared her as brought dead at around 12 am.
