Nagpur: Upset over constant failure in her engineering exams, a girl student committed suicide shortly after sending an SMS to her father saying ' I am sorry', police said on Thursday.

The victim, Rekha Ranjeet Singh, a second year student from the electronics branch from a local engineering college, took the extreme step after she felt guilty over lying to her parents about the results, they said.

The girl's father, an engineer with a public sector undertaking Coal company at Parseoni, near here came to college to deposit fee yesterday following which she ended her life on realising her mistake.

As soon as Singh received the SMS he alerted the hostel authorities on phone but by that time Rekha had jumped off the third floor and died on the spot.

Rana Pratap Nagar Police are investigating the accidental death, police added.
