A student of Dr B.R. Ambedkar University in Agra committed suicide
yesterday after the authorities put off the pharmacy examinations for
the third year in a row.

Sonvir Singh's classmates took to the streets after the incident and
went on a rampage for over three hours inside the campus today,
pelting stones at the Institute of Basic Science and the
Vice-Chancellor's office. The university authorities had to call in
the police to bring the students under control.

According to the students, Sonvir, a resident of Saiyyan town of Agra,
had shut himself inside his hostel room on Tuesday after he saw that
the university has closed for summer vacation till July 4 without
announcing the exam dates for the pharmacy course. It was to be held
in May.

Fearing that his careerwas doomed, he allegedly took his own life.
