MUMBAI: A 17-year-old junior college student ended his life by hanging from the ceiling at his Kalina home in Santacruz (East) on August 14. The incident was observed when the neighbours through the window noticed the teen hanged himself from the ceiling.
Vakola police probing the matter found no suicide note and the exact reason for the teen taking the extreme step is unknown. Police suspect that the teen got depressed because his father scolded him for playing games in his Laptop and mobile.
The teen was alone at home when he took the extreme step around 12.30pm after his father left home to his workplace in a bank at around 12 noon on August 14 while his mother has gone to her workplace in the morning. “The neighbours on noticing the deceased hanging rushed into the house and rushed him to Guru Nanak Hospital where he was declared dead on arrival,” said a Vakola police officer.
The deceased’s father told the cops that he does not complaint against anybody. In his statement, the father said, “My son was continuously playing games on his Laptop and mobile for the last the 15 days. He had become introvert for the last few days. Though we did not find him depress but we did not realise that he will take such an extreme step.”
A case of accidental death report (ADR) has been registered.
