As per information from the police, at approximately 11.30 am on Monday, an invigilator caught Aditya using a mobile phone during the examination. Subsequently, the invigilator seized the device and accompanied Aditya to a nearby room, where other faculty members provided him with counseling. They also mentioned that his parents would be informed about the incident. Unfortunately, upon hearing this distressing news, Aditya abruptly left the room and tragically took an extreme step, went to the eighth floor of another building of the campus and jumped to his death sometime between 12.30 pm and 1 pm. 

Following the heartbreaking loss of his son, Aditya, Ganesh Prabhu, a private company employee, has taken action by filing a complaint against the college management, principal, and other staff members. He holds them accountable for the tragic demise of his beloved son. In his complaint, Prabhu detailed the distressing incident involving his son, where the invigilator discovered a mobile phone in the boy’s bag during an examination. 

Despite the phone being in airplane mode, the invigilator insisted on removing Aditya from the examination hall. Adding to the already upsetting situation, the faculty member uttered deeply hurtful words, telling Aditya that it would be preferable for him to die rather than endure such circumstances. 

Prabhu learned about this shocking incident from other staff members present at the scene. The relentless pressure and harsh treatment drove his only child, Aditya, to take his own life.
