N Pallavi, who attempted self-immolation, is learnt to have sustained 70 per cent burns and her condition is said to be critical.
Pallavi, who wrote the second-year Intermediate examinations recently, doused herself with kerosene at her residence and set herself ablaze at around 7.30 pm. Her family members extinguished the fire and took her to the government hospital at Siricilla.
