Girl commits suicide after being shamed for ‘Menstrual Stain’?

A girl in Tirunelveli (Tamil Nadu) allegedly committed suicide after she was humiliated in her class by her teacher for ‘menstrual stain’ on her school uniform. Though the police have yet to ascertain the exact reason for the girl’s extreme step, the incident has sparked outrage across state and nation and is reflective as to how government campaigns on menstrual hygiene have failed to awaken the masses. However, the other angle being investigated in the episode is whether the rebuke from the teacher could also have been consistent for her academic performance. The girl is said to have left behind a suicide note as well.
