An 18-year-old student has allegedly committed suicide after he could not withdraw money to pay his examination fees in Banda district in Uttar Pradesh.

According to the police, Suresh had been standing in queue for several days, without luck. After he returned empty-handed from the bank yesterday, he hanged himself in his room with his mother’s saree.

The second year science undergraduate student had to submit his fees by today.
People at his village are now throwing stones at the bank in protest.

On Monday, a three-year-old child had died in the same district when her father could not get the cash needed to take her to a bigger hospital for treatment.
