Star pupil, 17, who got 10 A* GCSEs at top private girls' school died after cocaine-fuelled sex at parents' £1m home

December 8, 2018

Poorvi Giri, 17, got ten A* GCSEs at King Edward VI School in Birmingham, and planned to study physics at uni.

She collapsed from cardiac arrest after hooking up with an unnamed 19-year-old during the summer break.

Poorvi was rushed to Good Hope Hospital where her dad works as a knee surgeon.

Tests found cocaine in her system and "heart impairment" sparked by the class As.

The teen collapsed on August 1 and was unconscious until her death on August 22.

Paramedics rushed to the family house after she was found bleeding.

A 19-year-old was initially arrested for wounding, but later released without charge.

Birmingham Coroners’ Court heard medics fought for an hour to stem the blood before she was rushed to hospital at 4pm.

Her mum, Dr Vibha Giri, said: "Our whole family is heartbroken at the death of our brilliant and beautiful daughter."

Pals said the troubled schoolgirl had a history of drug use and "went off the rails" despite her exceptional achievement in class.

She used the name Pocaine on Instagram, a slang term for mixing cocaine and pot.

One friend said: "She was always a bit of a wild child but she really went off the rails before her GCSEs.

"She would come into school drunk and stuff.

They added that no-one knew the boy she had met for sex.

An inquest statement from Dr John Elliott read that changes to Poorvi’s heart "are the severest seen present in someone of that young age".

Dr Victoria Aziz, an expert in sexual offences, said Poorvi suffered internal injuries.

She said: "It’s impossible to say it was accidental, but it’s far more likely to have been accidental than intentional."

The coroner recorded a verdict of "misadventure."

Her parents, however, slammed suggestion she had ever been drunk at school.

A statement read: "We are very disappointed that someone who knew her should make such malicious and baseless allegations against her.

Ann Clark, her headteacher, said: "Teachers know students extremely well and would immediately spot a student acting out of character, enquiring after their welfare and alerting the pastoral team if they had any concerns."
