Schoolboy commits suicide in Rajasthan due to ragging by peers

Bhilwara, April 7, 2011

A seventh standard student allegedly committed suicide in a local school hostel here last evening allegedly due to ragging by four other students, a police spokesman said.

The death came to light when Murli Sharma, 13, of nearby Aama village did not turn up in the hostel mess for dinner last evening.

His room was found closed and he did not respond to calls by the staff and students. When the door was forced open, the boy found hanging

In his suicide note, Murli had written that a group of four students had assaulted and stripped him naked.

His father alleged that his son's death was a case of ragging. However, the students involved in the incident maintained that they did not intend to rag but only wanted to punish him as he had alone spent entire money provided to them for picnic by the school.
