21 Indian students kill themselves in a week after IT blunder meant they failed key exams

Up to 21 students have killed themselves in the last week in India after an IT glitch led to them failing their exams.

The victims, from Telangana state, include at least one boy who threw himself in front of a train and another girl who burned herself to death, local media reports.

Ministers have admitted there were 'major failings' with a new IT system used to grade the papers and that human error played a part as well.
