Disappointed with her poor performance in examination, a 19-year-old degree student committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan at her house at Chodavaram in Visakhapatnam district on Monday night.
P Haritha, a degree first-year student at a private college at Chodavaram, wrote her first-semester Chemistry papers on Monday.
