A teenage girl committed suicide in Kaghan Colony on Wednesday after failing her Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations. Mirpur police quoted Muhammad Afzal as saying that his niece, Mehvish Bibi, had appeared in the SSC exam for the year 2012.
However, when she found out that she had failed, she became so dejected that she locked herself in her bedroom and shot herself in the head with her father’s licensed pistol. She was taken to the Ayub medical Complex, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
