A student committed suicide today by hanging himself from a tree near the Damdim area of Mal Block in Dooars. The boy has been recognized as Vishwajeet Burman, a student in the 10th standard.
Sources share that the boy had been scolded by his father yesterday since he had a habit of using the mobile phone a lot. He was reported to be missing since then.
Vishwajeet did not return home in the night as well. In the morning today, his father decided to go to the police station. When he came out of the house, he saw Vishwajeet’s body hanging from the tree.
The father took the son’s body to the hospital, where the doctors declared Vishwajeet to be dead on arrival. His body has now been sent to the Jalpaiguri Sadar Hospital for the postmortem report.
