A 22-year-old youth tried to commit suicide in a government-run shelter home in Outer Delhi on Friday night.
Police said he was allegedly harassed by one of the staff and was asked to vacate the home within a week as he had crossed the maximum age — 21 years — for inmates permitted to live in the house.
“Gitta (22) was repeatedly being asked by a staffer to leave the government-run shelter home for boys in Alipur area, where he had been living for the past four years. Children up to the age of 18 are allowed to stay in the house but they can get an extension of three years after reaching the age limit,” a senior police officer said.

“As Gitta is 22-years-old, the staff had been pressuring him to leave. He, however, being an orphan and having nowhere to go, refused to do so.
He then decided to attempt suicide by hanging himself in his room but the other boys broke open the door and rescued him. He was admitted to a nearby hospital and is now out of danger,” the officer said.
