A teenager ended his life in his house in Nandigama on the city outskirts on Tuesday after his father scolded him for spending long hours with his mobile phone. The boy is studying intermediate student at a private college in Shadnagar. He got addicted to the mobile phone after his father brought him one for online classes.
Ever since he is always seen busy on social media and playing games on it. His father had warned him several times, but he continued his behavior. On Tuesday too, after spotting him with the phone, his father scolded him and ventured out. Upset about it, the boy went to his room and locked it from inside. He ended his life by hanging from the ceiling fan.
Family members found him hanging from the fan once they are back. They are shocked at this unexpected sorrow in their lives. The Nandigama police booked a case and took up an investigation. The father is crestfallen about being the reason for his son's death. The police say no suicide note has been found on the boy or in the room.
