A 18-year-old student in Tripura was critically injured after he tried to commit suicide by jumping off his school building on being allegedly forced by his teachers to get a Rakhi tied on his wrist by a girl, Agartala police said on Tuesday, 28 August.

Principal and other teachers of a private school in Agartala on Monday called Dilip Kumar Saha and his girlfriend along with their parents. They then asked the girl to tie Rakhi to Dilip and both of them refused to do so. Subsequently, Dilip went to the second floor of the school building and jumped from there.
