According to reports, the student, who has sustained neck injuries, was unconscious at Tata Main Hospital and police officials are waiting for her statement.
The girl, a resident of Chhayanagar slum, was spotted in a dupatta noose tied to a ceiling fan by a family member around 1 pm. The person brought her down and loosened the knot. She was rushed to MGM Medical College and Hospital in Sakchi from where she was referred to TMH in Bistupur.

Relatives said the girl's father worked at a private firm in Golmuri. "She is an average student, but it is unlikely for her to kill herself over exams. She had no paper today (Thursday)," a relative said, adding that the teenager might have had a fight with her mother in the morning.
