This isn’t the first time that a student ended his life over a dispute with the teacher and now cases like these have turned into something so trivial for the masses that they don’t react over incidents like these.
A college student ended his life after allegedly being involved in a feud with his teacher in Havelian, Abbottabad on Monday.
Qasim was a first-year student and studied at a private college, according to authorities. All torn up after the dispute with the teacher, he put a bullet through his head in his house. That’s when his family rushed him to the Ayub Medical Complex in a critical condition.
Although, Qasim did not survive and drew his last breath in the hospital.
