An incident at school left a 12-year-old girl so devastated she took her own life, according to reports.

Her lifeless body was discovered on Thursday after she jumped off her neighbour’s terrace in the early hours of the morning, India Today reports.

The grade 7 pupil at Senthil Nagar School in the residential area of Senthil Nagar in Palayamkottai Town, Southern India was left humiliated after her menstrual blood leaked through her school uniform, staining her clothes and the seat that she was sitting on.

Embarrassed, she asked her teacher for permission to go to the bathroom.

But the teacher shouted at her in front of the entire class for not placing her sanitary towel properly.

As a result, the youngster leapt from her neighbour’s balcony at 3am the next morning.
