Dental student jumps to death

Lucknow A 22-year-old dental surgery student on Friday committed suicide by jumping from the second floor of a building in her college campus in Lucknow, police said.

The family of Deep Shikha, the fourth-year student of Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS), allege she was driven to suicide after being repeatedly harassed by the college staff.

They said Shikha was booked for using unfair means during exams at the Saraswati Dental College, where she was a student.
