A 12-year-old boy hanged himself in Kadma on Friday after his mother scolded him for spilling milk during breakfast.

Seventh grader Sumit Kumar of Saraswati Vidya Mandir, Kadma, was found hanging from the ceiling fan by his shocked mother and neighbours around 9am at the Ramjanamnagar home.

Sumit was the youngest of the three sons of BSNL employee Prem Paswan, who was at Mango on duty when the tragedy occurred. The mother’s name couldn’t be ascertained.

The lady, after scolding her son, went for a bath. When she came out, she found a room bolted from inside. Neighbours broke the door open to find the boy hanging.

He was rushed to Tata Main Hospital where he was declared brought dead. Police sent the body to MGM Medical College and Hospital for autopsy. A case of unnatural death has been registered with Kadma police.
