Mumbai: A 14-year-old boy committed suicide by hanging himself in his bathroom in Vikhroli on Tuesday night. The reason he took such an extreme step is that he was afraid of being reprimanded for poor results in his school exam.

Officials said the boy, identified as Sahid Khan, allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself with a dupatta inside the bathroom of his Islampura residence in Vikhroli at around 8pm on Tuesday. The deceased was a student of Class 8 at Sandesh High School, Vikhroli, and was living with his parents and two brothers at Vikhroli Parkside.

 

Parkside police said, “Sahid fought with his parents before he committed suicide. Around 8pm after the quarrel, he went inside the bathroom, telling his mother he wanted to take a bath due to the heat. Once inside, he hung himself with his mother’s dupatta. When he did not come out of the bathroom as he normally would, his mother called out to him to step out but he did not reply. Twenty minutes later, he still hadn’t come out so his panicked mother called his father. The father broke down the bathroom door only to find his dead son inside.

 

Senior police inspector from Vikhroli Parkside police station, Rajendra Kulkarni, said, “We have spoken to neighbours, the brothers of the deceased as well as his parents. He committed suicide because of tension regarding his studies and the exam results. Sahid was declared dead before admission in Rajawadi Hospital. We have registered an Accidental Death Report (ADR). Soon, we will speak to his teachers in school and his friends.”
