An intermediate student committed suicide at Surya Tanda in Karepalli mandal in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Sources said that J. Ashok, 17, an intermediate second year student of a Khammam-based private junior college, allegedly hanged himself to death at his house.

Ashok was reportedly upset with recurring headache and difficulty in concentrating on studies.

His father reportedly rebuked him for his ‘lack’ of interest in studies on Monday night. He also told Ashok about the family’s poor financial condition and the dire necessity to focus on studies to carve out a bright future for himself, it was learnt.

The Karepalli police registered a case and are investigating.
