Previous student suicide

A Class IX student in Karnataka’s Chikkaballapura district died by suicide after being scolded by his parents over mobile phone addiction, the police said in a statement on Tuesday, November 7. An IANS report stated that the 15-year-old boy Lokesh’s severe mobile phone addiction worried his parents and they wanted him to focus on his studies.


When his father objected to his mobile phone addiction on November 6, both of them got into an argument and the boy fought with his parents and left the house in angst. The boy, in a fit of rage, and not being able to take the constant criticism, hanged himself from a tree in an isolated place in his village, Chittavalahalli.
