It is said that the youth holds the future of a nation. But it’s sad to see the number of youth suicides competing with the number of achievements by youth in our country.
A recent suicide by an 18-year-old boy from Jogeshwari, Mumbai has set an alarm for the society. The boy hanged himself to death yesterday night following an argument regarding watching the IPL match.
As per Mumbai Mirror, the boy and his mother had an argument when she asked him to check the water tank outside. When he refused to do so the mother switched off the TV.
The local police told Mumbai Mirror that the boy named Nilesh Gupta was watching IPL match when his mother asked him to check water tank. The police informed-
“He refused to do so, following which his mother asked him to switch off the TV. That led to a verbal altercation between the two.”
After turning off the TV, mother went outside to check the water tank herself. The boy’s father and younger sister were not present at home at that time. When she returned after 15 minutes, she found the room locked from inside.
She called out to him a few times but after getting no response from him, she raised the alarm. The neighbours helped her open the door and there they found him hanging by a cloth from the ceiling in the living room.
The boy was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.
The boy’s father Anil, said the BCom student “loved” cricket more than anything.
A senior inspector, Bharat Gaikwad said the statements of family members were recorded and an accidental death report registered.
Another police officer said-
“As of now, we suspect that he killed himself in a fit of rage.”
