12-year-old boy dies mysteriously

A 12-year-old boy was found hanging under mysterious circumstances at his Vinayakanagar home in Vyalikaval police station limits. 

The deceased is Sameera Vadiraj, a class 7 student and son of Srinivasamurthy, a defence clerk, and Padmaja. 

Police said the incident might have occurred while he was playing on a swing. The rope might have given way and come across his neck, they suspected. 

Or else, he might have hanged himself after everybody went out. 

Vadiraj was alone at home as his parents had gone to work and sister Shilpa to college.

 He had stayed at home as he had fever. He was a meritorious student and had done well in all school exams. There were no domestic problems in the family either.
 Padmaja called up Vadiraj to enquire his health but did not get a response. She got worried and called up the landlord to check up on him. 

The landlord was stunned to see Vadiraj hanging and immediately called the parents. Vadiraj was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival, the police added.
