9th class student commits suicide over his marriage

Upset over his parents's decision to marry him to a girl of their choice, a ninth class student allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree in the forest, police said here today.

Shabir Ahmed's (17) body was found hanging from a tree in the forest belt near his Pumara village in Ramnagar belt of Udhampur district here where he allegedly committed suicide last night, a police officer said.

Shabbir had been staying with a friend after his parents chose a local girl for his marriage against his wishes and an altercation occurred. He is believed to have taken the extreme step when his family pressurised him to return and get engaged, police said, adding that he had an affair with another girl.

The body has been handed over to the family after conducting a post mortem, police said.
