Youth ends life over minor issue
LAHORE: A 15-year-old Hafiz-e-Quran boy allegedly shot himself dead shortly after his parents admonished him over study-issue in Satukatla police precincts on Sunday. Authorities identified the boy as Zamin Ali of N-Block in Nawab Town. Family sources said Zamin was absent from the Madirsa for the last seven days on which his father Shams-ul-Din snubbed him with advice to attend his next class.
The annoyed boy shot himself in the temple as a result of which a bullet pieced into his head, leaving him in critical condition on the spot. The family, however, immediately shifted him to a nearby hospital where the doctors pronounced him dead. Later, the body was handed over to the bereaved family after police completed necessary medico-legal formalities.
