Due to load shedding and extreme heat, a student tragically perished today during his board exam for the eleventh grade.

The incident happened at the Government Degree College in Sindh’s Khairpur district of Thiri. To take their exams, many students gathered at the testing location.

Mehtab Ali, the student, passed out during his exam and was taken right away to the hospital. He, unfortunately, died because his life could not be saved.

According to early reports, the student likely suffocated to death.

It is significant to note that the province-wide summer break had already been announced by Sindh’s education department. All educational institutions will be closed from June 1 through July 31, 2023, per the notification, with schools reopening on August 1.

In light of this tragic event, it is now being questioned whether it was a good idea to hold exams in May during the sweltering heat without a reliable power supply.
