This is a girl student of Chakradhar High School, Singiri Dahisahi. She had registered for High School Certificate Examination and her roll number was ACC003077. She is in a serious condition with 90% burn injury as she attempted to commit suicide by immolating herself under frustration over shifting of HSC examination to uncertain future after theft of questionpapers in all the subjects except MIL was known.
Doctors of S.C.B.medical College, Cuttack are trying to save her life as the Orissa Government failed to save the examination from the underworld.
HSC examination is the gateway to higher education. About 5 lakh students had registered themselves on payment of fees for the same. The Government could not keep the questionpapers secret and as their leakage spread, instead of conducting the examinations with the alternative sets of questionpapers – to keep which ready for use in such exigencies, fees are also collected from the students – the government stopped the examination and shifted it to a future day not yet decided, though it is just being aired that it may take tentatively three weeks to have the alternative sets printed.
One examination center covers many High Schools and as such are usually so distant from the home of majority of students that sufficient ahead of the date of examination, they arrange their accommodation, often with difficulty, in the place where the center is situated. Cancellation and shifting of the Examination has forced them to suffer the loss mentally, physically and financially.
Around five lakhs of students, dreams shattered, are subjected to this suffering.
