A case has come to light from St. Xavier’s School in Jharkhand. Here a 17-year-old girl committed suicide because her school teacher humiliated her in front of the whole school. She could not tolerate this insult.

The name of the minor victim is Usha Kumari, who is studying in St. Xavier’s School studies in class 10th and was a resident of Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Usha wrote a suicide letter before hanging herself from the ceiling fan, in which she blamed her teacher Sindhu Jha.

It was written in the suicide letter, “I could not tolerate my insult, so I am committing suicide. Sindhu Mam is fully responsible for my death, after my death, strict action should be taken against her.”

Actually, Usha Kumari went to school wearing a bindi, due to which her teacher Sindhu slapped her in front of everyone and expelled her from the school. Usha informed her mother about this incident. then both came to the principal office but they both are too were humiliated and thrown out.
