Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- A Moroccan student in his thirties, in his final year of studies at the leading Moroccan engineering school École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Rabat, committed suicide after jumping in front of a moving train en route to Marrakesh.
According to his friends, his rationale behind committing suicide has to do with his expulsion from said university, only few months before winding up his education plans.
The expulsion had sent the student into a spiral of depression, triggering him to take his own life in a scary way.
A former classmate of the late, speaking to The Moroccan Times on the condition of anonymity, said that the late “was a very nice, jovial, and friendly person.”
“He was one of the friendliest students ever. Very nice and very polite.
“He just could not fathom why he would be expelled, especially that he was in his thirties, and only few months before graduating.
“It was the last straw because he was not a young person who could restart his life from scratch, he was in his thirties, and that’s difficult to take,” his classmate said.
The late’s body was completely disfigured after suffering multiple catastrophic injuries caused by the impact with the train.
An investigation was launched by the Moroccan police to lift the lid on the circumstances of the death.
