Kollam: A 15-year-old girl, who had jumped off the third floor of her school building in Kollam district of Kerala over alleged harassment on Friday, died at a private hospital on Monday.
The girl, a class 10 student of the ICSE school Trinity Lyceum, jumped from the building after her teachers allegedly scolded her.
The girl had objected to her younger sibling, studying in the same school, being punished by teachers for talking in the class.
Her sister was reportedly made to sit with boys. She had questioned the punishment and got into an argument with the teachers.
The girl's parents met the school authorities and threatened to file a complaint against the teachers, but they assured them that this would not happen again.
Later, when both the sisters were mocked and teased by their friends, they entered into a verbal spat.
The teachers had punished the girls again. According to the girl's relatives, the teachers even threatened her of not allowing her to take the board examination.
The girl's father told police that his daughter jumped from the building as she was mentally harassed by the teachers.
Police have booked a case against two teachers on charges of abetment of suicide.
The police are questioning the teachers. A police officer said a case would be registered.
The girl was hospitalised on Friday from where she was transferred to a specialty hospital in Thiruvananthapuram....
