Maharajganj: A class 12 student and a 16-year-old girl consumed poison on their school campus here over their parents not approving their relationship, police said on Wednesday.
Both were rushed to a nearby community health centre soon after the incident on Tuesday afternoon and were later referred to the district hospital where the 20-year-old student of class 12 died during treatment, they said.
The girl is still in the hospital and her condition is said to be stable, officials said.
