Rabat – A teacher of Islamic Studies at Almaarifa High School in Ait Melloul – a city near Agadir – allegedly committed suicide on Tuesday by hanging himself with a rope on the terrace of his house.
In a shocking scene, the 53-year-old teacher reportedly killed himself after he failed to cope with his mental disorder triggered by undisciplined students.
The deceased was teaching Islamic Studies previously at Oued Souss Middle School, before he obtained a Master degree, which authorized him to teach in high school for the 2015/2016 school year.
According to local news websites, the relatives of the victim stated that the teacher, who is originally from Tiznit, had been suffering from mental disorders.
The deceased had several issues controlling his students. Being unable to control them, the teacher reportedly hit his head to the wall a month ago inside the classroom after he entered a hysteric situation because of the misbehavior and noise of the students.
Police and civil defense services arrived immediately to the scene of Tuesday’s tragedy after his neighbors noticed his long absence.
After conducting the usual investigation and screening of the crime scene under the supervision of the public prosecutor, they transferred the victim’s body to the morgue for autopsy by order of the General Prosecutor.
