Student kills self after caught 'copying'; principal booked

A 19-year-old student, who purportedly jumped off the fourth floor of his college here on Tuesday apparently after he was found copying during an examination, succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday, police said.

Police have booked the principal of MIT Nursing College and a teacher for purportedly abetting the suicide of Sachin Wagh who was caught for copying during BSc (Nutrition Biochemistry) examination by the invigilator and the principal of the college, who asked him to call his parents.

A police official said Wagh took the extreme step fearing that his parents might reprimand him.

He said Wagh was rushed to the ICU of a private hospital with multiple fractures.

"He died during treatment...," the official said.

On the complaint filed by Wagh's father, police on Wednesday registered an FIR against the college principal Helen Rani and teacher Rachna More, said a senior police officer.

"A case was registered under section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the IPC against the principal and the teacher," said DCP Rahul Shrirame.

Meanwhile, MIT Nursing College Director Munish Sharma denied allegations that authorities were pressing Wagh to pay fees.
