A 16-year-old boy from Delhi has allegedly died by suicide after failing in two subjects in the CBSE Class-12 exams in east Delhi’s Laxmi Nagar area on Monday, police said.

As per PTI, the student's body was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his room in a paying-guest accommodation, where he was staying on rent, an officer said, adding that no suicide note has been found.

Police had to break open the door to the room, the officer added.

Hailing from Etawah in Uttar Pradesh, Arjun Saxena had come to Delhi to prepare for the engineering entrance exam alongside the Class-12 exam.

Saxena’s family members have been informed about the incident and the body has been kept at a mortuary for post-mortem.

According to the police, a probe is on to ascertain the exact cause behind the extreme step.

This year, the practice of the CBSE releasing merit lists for the top-scoring students in the Class 10 and 12 exams was permanently discontinued. The purpose of this move was to lessen the amount of "unhealthy competition" that exists among students.

Approximately 39 lakh students from over 26 different nations took the CBSE exams this year.
