A NEET(National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) aspirant from Coimbatore who wrote the exam for the second time fled his home on Thursday.
He also left a letter saying that he took the decision in fear of not being able to pass the exam. 19-year-old Vignesh is the son of Madhan, a government school teacher from Kengarai village in the Nilgiris district and his wife Ambikavathy.
Vignesh has taken up residence with his mother Ambikavathy at Vijayalakshmi Nagar in Periyanaickenpalayam, Coimbatore to write the NEET exam last year. Since he got a low score in the exam last year, he joined the NEET coaching to write the exam again this year. It was said that Vignesh has been sad since he gave his second attempt of the exam last week.
In this context, Vignesh suddenly went missing on Thursday. His mom has been searching for him in various places but in vain. Then it was learned that Vignesh had written a letter addressed to his parents in his diary at 12.30 am and the diary was found in his bedroom. He had written in the letter, “ ear mom and dad, I can’t reciprocate what you expect from me.
I am indeed scared to tell the truth about the disappointment in the NEET exam this time as well. I do not know if it’s right or wrong for me to be in this house anymore or to call you Daddy Mommy but I have decided to leave home. Today I am going a long way towards my success. Don’t search for me and I’ll be back in a few more years. I am sure I would return as a winner”.
Seeing this, his mother has lodged a complaint at the Periyanaickenpalayam police station. Police have registered a case and are searching for the missing student Vignesh. While the government is taking various measures to aid the NEET aspirants with necessary mental and psychological support, the incident has caused a stir in Coimbatore.
