Shocked over Jiah Khan’s death, 12-year-old boy commits suicide
The news of Jiah Khan’s suicidal death had indeed shocked the nation, but many are not aware that the paparazzi related to that might affect to common man’s life. A 12-year-old boy in Sriganganagar district, Rajasthan, recently committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling of his house on Wednesday (June 5). The small child was apparently continuously hearing the news of the death of actor Jiah Khan, who committed suicide in Mumbai on Monday (June 3).
According to the police, the boy named Babu, a resident of Gurunanak Basti in Sriganganagar, woke up on Tuesday morning and was watching television. Babu was a student of Class V in a private school.
“He became depressed after watching the news of Jiah Khan’s death. Soon after he watched some DVDs of Jiah Khan’s movies, and in the afternoon, the boy committed suicide in his room. He didn’t even lock the room and hanged from the ceiling fan,” said a police officer.
“He was found hanging from the ceiling and his television and DVD player was on. We have also recovered some DVDs of the film in which Jiah Khan had acted,” further added by the police officer.
Investigating officer of the case, Ramesh Chand, stated that the 12-year-old small boy was continuously watching the TV news related to the death of the actress, and even asked his mother why she committed suicide at such a young age. Although the mother convinced him not to take it seriously, but later when she went to kitchen for cooking lunch, the boy committed suicide in his room.
Well, this is indeed very sad news, and also a harsh lesson for all the media and parents!
