Bullied student commits suicide in Charsadda
CHARSADDA: A 14–year-old eighth grade student of a government high school Batgram, Shabqadar, committed suicide here on Thursday after he was bullied at school and home for his lack of interest in studies, police said. They said that Yaqoob, son of Kaleem, shot himself dead with a pistol at his home after his father, Kaleem, scolded him for not taking interest in his studies. Mr Kaleem told police that his son was unwilling to go to school due to bullying by his class teacher.
He said that he would also scold Mr Yaqoob whenever he resisted going to school. Frustrated with the harsh attitude of his father and teacher, Mr Yaqoob went home and shot himself dead with a pistol. The Batgram police registered a case and have started further investigation.
