A 14-year-old boy committed suicide by hanging himself from the shower of his bathroom in Parksite, Vikhroli this Tuesday night.

The deceased, identified as Khalid Khan, had a fight with his parents before he went to the bathroom around 8 pm to take a shower. When he did not come out of the bathroom for quite some time, his mother called out to him but he didn’t reply.

Soon his father rushed home and broke down to see if he was okay. However, was shocked to see Khalid hanging from the shower. He was immediately taken to Rajawadi Hospital, but he was declared dead upon arrival.

Khalid was a student of Class VIII at Sandesh High School, and lived with his parents and two brothers.

The reason he took such an extreme step is that he was afraid of being reprimanded for poor results in his school exam.
