A boy, who was not even a teenager allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan in his house in outer Delhi’s Aman Vihar area, police said on Sunday.

The incident happened on Saturday evening when the boy’s parents were not at home, they said. The reason for the suicide by the 12-year-old was that he wanted some money on Janmasthmi and the parents refused.

According to police, the boy had asked his mother for some money to spend on the occasion of Janmashtami.

His mother, however, refused to lend him money and he was upset for being scolded about the same. When his mother went to attend a prayer nearby, he allegedly committed suicide, they said.

The investigation into the case is on.
