A class IX girl of a private school in Delhi's Mayur Vihar committed suicide on Tuesday, allegedly for scoring low marks.

Ikisha's father told the police that she had complained of the two teachers sexually harassing her, and that they would deliberately fail her in the exams.

Though the police could not find a suicide note to ascertain the reason behind the girl killing herself, her mother is blaming two of her school teachers.

"Ultimately they failed her in SST..."

"Based on the complaint received from the parents, we have booked two teachers of the victim girl's school under sections 306, 506 and 354 of the Indian Penal Code for abetment of suicide, criminal intimidation and sexual harassment", said Akhilesh Tripathi, the station house officer of Noida's Sector 24 police station.
