An Indian-origin teenager, Elena Mondal, 14, was found hanged in the grounds of a top UK grammar school. The victim was reportedly feeling excluded by her classmates for not including her in a WhatsApp group.

The victim was found unresponsive by her teachers in a wooded area. A wellbeing manager at the school, Kelly Barry, said that Elena had been referred to the school counsellor after missing meals and complaining of depression – but had missed several appointments.

According to the School officials the deceased Indian-origin teenager, wanted to be a doctor, once fled a classroom in tears clutching a pair of scissors, before collapsing in a corridor and cutting her arms in a toilet.
