A day before he was to appear for his Class X Board examinations,a 16-year-old boy hanged himself on Friday evening,police said. He was to appear for his Science exam on Saturday. He took the extreme step when his mother had gone to the market. “When she returned,she found him hanging from the ceiling fan,” said a police officer. No suicide note was found. The mother told police that she had scolded him in the afternoon for playing with his friends instead of studying. Police believe this may have prompted him to take the extreme step. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival.
