When she asked permission from her teacher to go to the washroom to clean herself up, the teacher scolded her in front of her parents for being careless.

Chennai: Anitha, a Dalit student from Tamil Nadu who was among the state toppers in the 12th board exam scoring 1176 marks out of the total 1200 marks has allegedly committed suicide. Health Secretary Dr J Radhakrishanan, who was in Delhi fighting the same case in the SC, also expressed grief at the suicide and urged students to stay fearless.

Anitha had raised several issues, while talking to Ahmed, on the disparity and inequality in the society to receive a quality education and said that she was echoing the voices of the oppressed and backward students who dream of reaching greater heights through education.

On August 16, the medical students from Tamil Nadu moved the Supreme Court seeking directive for the state government to start medical counselling soon.

AIADMK spokesperson CR Saraswathi, who supports the TTV Dhinakaran faction in the party, blamed both the central and state governments for Anita's suicide.

He said Anitha had scored 196.5 cut-off marks and it would have gained her a seat in one of the best State-run medical colleges.

The baby was with Crews when she was arrested in the same apartment building where Greywind was living with her parents. The parents told of Savannah not taking her purse, not answering her phone with her vehicle remaining in the driveway.

In the suicide note accessed by The News Minute, she said: "Did I ever get reported when I was in Class VI?"

Her parents had no idea why she took her life until they found a suicide note which reads: "Amma please forgive me, I don't see any other way". But both the state and central governments intentionally betrayed the students of Tamil Nadu, he said.

Dr. G. Ravindranath, general secretary of Doctors' Association for Social Equality said the failure to get Presidential assent to NEET exemption Bills led to Anitha's death.

The State government and the leaders here, too, are sure to come under heavy fire from the protestors for the way the whole matter was dragged till the very end.

Later in the day, two Tamil actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan reacted to Anitha's suicide.

Noteworthy that although the Central government introduced NEET a year ago, Tamil Nadu was exempted from it. "The Governor has to take immediate action to save Tamil Nadu". However, she got only 86 marks in the NEET examination for medicine.
