Anitha, hails from Kuzhumur village in Ariyalur, one of the backward districts of Tamil Nadu. The NEET, in fact, has been at the centre of political and legal tussles ever since its inception in 2013 - the year the first common medical entrance test was conducted before it ran into rough weather.

After fighting a prolonged battle against National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in Supreme Court, 17-year-old Chennai girl Anita has chose to end her life and allegedly committed suicide on Friday.

Anitha passed Plus two securing 1176 marks out of 1200.

On Friday, the 17-year-old killed herself after failing to get a medical seat.

On September 22 past year, the Supreme Court had directed the Tamil Nadu government to begin medical examinations based on NEET. Her alleged suicide has generated widespread protest and condemnation against state and central governments.

This came after the NEET, which was made mandatory for admission in the MBBS and the BDS courses across India previous year, got separate petitions filed at the Madras and Gujarat High Courts, where medical aspirants demanded cancellation of the NEET 2017 as the Gujarati and Tamil medium paper were allegedly tougher than the English and Hindi medium.

Chennai: In a shocking incident, a state board student ended her life disappointed over failing to get entrance into a medical college through the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET). "Anitha had faith in the promise of the government but committed suicide because she could not tolerate the betrayal".

State BJP leader H. Raja had openly backed NEET saying it was a fallacy to state that non-State board students would not be able to get admissions under NEET. She would have qualified for MBBS had admissions been held on the basis of Plus Two marks. My heart goes out to all the pain and agony she would have undergone before taking this drastic step. But the Supreme Court prohibited the admission of students from any way other than NEET. "And whatever happened to the state government's promise of exempting Tamil Nadu students from NEET?"

Actor Rajinikanth expressed his grief over the death of Anitha and conveyed his condolences to her family.
