Two teenaged students, including the son of a Sessions Judge, committed suicide at their residences in different parts of the Capital during the past 24 hours
Fifteen-year-old Sushrat hanged himself at his house in Gulabi Bagh on Saturday around 9 a.m. His father is a Sessions Judge at Tis Hazari courts.
“Sushrat was alone at home when he hanged himself. His father was away in Ajmer, his mother had gone for shopping and sister for tuition. When the domestic help came around 9 a.m. she found the house latched from inside and there was no response to her repeated knocks at the door. Soon Sushrat’s sister also returned and the two along with a neighbour entered the house through a window and found him hanging. He was declared brought dead at hospital,” said a senior police officer, on condition of anonymity.
Though Sushrat did not leave behind any suicide note, preliminary investigation suggested that he was not good at studies and that could be the reason for him taking the extreme step.
Sushrat was a Class XI student of Mata Jai Kaur Public School.
In another incident, Ankit Jha (14), a Mehrauli resident, latched his mother’s and younger brother’s rooms from outside on Sunday noon and hanged himself from the ceiling fan in his room. Ankit was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead.
He was a Class IX student of The Mother’s International School on Sri Aurobindo Marg. His father is a Sanskrit teacher in the same school.
Ankit did not leave behind any suicide note and it was not known as to why he took the extreme step, the police said.
