Student dies of heart attack during exam after invigilator told her to change center halfway in Karnataka

Strong points

  • The student was asked to rush to another center 100 meters away
  • A tense student collapsed while rushing to the other exam center
  • The student died of a heart attack

The death of a student sitting for the Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination (SSLC, Class 10) due to a heart attack has sparked a debate in Karnataka over the ‘inhumane’ and ‘negligent’ approach from the overseer and Education Department authorities, as shocking details emerge from the case. The incident happened in the town of T. Narasipur, Mysuru district, on Monday as Anushree was taking the exam at a center of Vidyodaya College.

The parents of the deceased student, as well as the public, denounce the “negligent” and “inhumane” attitude of the supervisor for having taken back her answer sheet an hour after the start of the exam, and for having asked her to go to another exam center to write his paper again.

Many organizations blame the authorities for causing stress to the student, leading to a heart attack. Madapura High School student Anushree collapsed while rushing to another exam center on Monday. It turned out that the tense student had gone to the wrong exam center. The supervisor had given him an answer sheet without checking his entrance ticket. Halfway through the exam, the invigilator realized that she had gone to the wrong center and took back her answer sheet and her question sheet.

The student was asked to rush to another center 100 meters away. A tense one collapsed while rushing to the other exam center. Anushree’s parents are now furious with the handling of the case and the overseer’s “inhumane” approach.

Many people now say that the proctor should have allowed Anushree to complete his exam. Dalit Sangharsha Samithi (DSS) District Officer Alagudu Shivakumar directly blamed the caretaker’s negligence for Anushree’s death.

Anushree’s uncle, Mahesh, said she wanted to become a district commissioner, adding that she had no health problems. He also demanded an investigation into the incident. The block’s education officer, Mariswamy, said that under the rules she could not have been allowed to continue with the same answer sheet. National education authorities are awaiting the autopsy report.
