Naps Girls mourn student’s death

By Cecily Asson Saturday, August 14 2010

The achievements of Naparima Girls’ High School, San Fernando at the 2010 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) were yesterday overshadowed by news of the death of a Lower Six student Kalyzan Beharry, 17, who according to police, allegedly committed suicide after collecting her first year results from the principal’s office on Thursday.

Investigators believed Beharry, of McCommie Street, Gulf View, La Romaine, was depressed over her first year results and allegedly took her life. A police report said relatives returned home at about 6.30 pm on Thursday and found the teenager, with a piece of nylon rope around her neck, hanging from the top floor of the split level house. An autopsy was expected to be performed at the Forensic Science Centre, St James yesterday.

Principal Patricia Ramgoolam yesterday said she was informed of the tragedy and was trying to deal with it.

Ramgoolam said, “It is really sad news and at this point we are very saddened.”

Saying she was unaware of the circumstances surrounding Beharry’s death, Ramgoolam went on to describe the teenager as a “very pleasant student.”

She said, “She took part in extra curricular activities. She was part of the President’s Award Scheme, she played the piano, did swimming. It is very sad.”

A few students who visited the school to collect their CAPE results yesterday said they were surprised by Beharry’s death.

One student said, “We heard about it last night and the news is only now spreading. While it is a time to be happy and celebrate our success and that of the school, we can’t help but think of her.”

No one was at Beharry’s home when Newsday visited yesterday.

WPC Stephen-James of the San Fernando Police Station is conducting the investigation.
