The NEET-UG 2020 for admissions into medical and dental courses has begun on a smooth note across India today, Sunday, September 13, 2020. The exam centres were increased significantly across India to ensure implementation of Covid norms on social distancing. However, three students committed suicide in Tamil Nadu a day ahead of NEET fearing failure.
Madurai-based Jyothi Sridurga, daughter of policeman Murugasundaram, hanged herself at her residence. The day's second suicide happened in Dharmapuri where a boy named Aditya snuffed out his own life. In Namakkal district, another boy named Motilal hanged himself to death.
