As many as 25 students have killed themselves since the announcement of Intermediate results on April 18, the families have been sheerly left with an irreparable loss. One of those students, Anamika Arutla, has committed suicide in Hyderabad on 18 April after the results in Telangana declared her failed in Telugu subject. However, her elder sister Udaya found Anamika's result online on June 1 and learned that she did not fail in the subject. She had scored not 20 marks, but 48 marks. Hence, she claimed that her sister did not commit suicide but was murdered, blaming the Telangana government and the intermediate board.
Now, after High Court order, the Telangana state board of Intermediate Education held a re-evaluation of her papers and claimed that Anamika had got only one extra mark- much below the passing level, even after re-verification of her exam sheet. When Anamika was alive, she saw her marks as 20 in the Telugu paper and later, her sister saw 48 upon re-evaluation on the site. But according to the latest update by the Board, the student has got only 21 marks in the subject.
When finding out that 1137 students had passed and their initial results were uploaded wrongly, Telangana Congress Working President and MP Revanth Reddy also slammed on the Board and tweeted, "Inter board mistake cost Anamika her life. Reverification proved she didn't fail. Globarina & Inter Board should be held responsible for her death and Sections 302, 304A & 306 should be booked."
However, in a press statement released by the TSBIE, the Board denied having any involvement in the student's death. "Family is alleging TSBIE responsible for Anamika's suicide. We deny this allegation and will provide proof of answer scripts in which marks have changed from 20 to 21 after re-verification. Her marks were wrongly uploaded as 48 instead of 21 because of clerical mistake in the spot valuation camp," it added.
On the other hand, Anamika, who was a confident young girl, was full of personality and passion, her sister Udaya said that "She was brave and loved being a part of her NCC training. Her aim was to become an Army officer. With a life full of dreams, her sister claims she cannot even think of ending her life abruptly".
