The villagers of Shiroda were shocked to find Aniket Davane, a 11-year-old student from the village hanging from a tree near his house on Friday night in what appears to be yet another case of suicide.
The youngster did not go to school on Friday and did not give any specific reason to his family for the same. Later at around 11 am, he left the house and when he did not return for lunch, the family began to get worried.
They along with neighbours began searching for Aniket and it was only in the night that his body was founding hanging from a tree in the neighbourhood. The youngster used his mother’s dupatta to hang himself for reasons not yet known.
This is the third case of suicide by a youngster in this region following the earlier ones of Sayani a XII standard student who ended her life because she did not answer her exams well and Vishal Singh a SCC student.
