A 19 year old first year student of Indian Law Society’s Law College (ILS, Pune) committed suicide in his room allegedly after failing the exams Saturday.

Hundreds of ILS students met the principal Tuesday alleging error in the evaluation of answer sheets.

Saumitra Dhoble was on vacation in his hometown Nagpur when the results were declared.

We at Lawctopus are deeply saddened by the event. Words are poor comforters…may his soul rest in peace.

  1. That’s enough! It seems that most media agencies seem to have formulated a hype over Saumitra’s death and trying to say that he did it because he failed his exams. We, his friends and acquaintances at ILS and no one who knew him personally know the real reason for his committing suicide but these media agencies seem to be having a field day over making assumptions as to why he committed suicide! Stop making such asinine assumptions and leave the guy alone, for heaven’s sakes!
