KADAPA:  A 14-year-old boy on Tuesday committed suicide by hanging himself using his school tie in the hostel of Montfort School near Rajiv Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Kadapa. His hostel mates claimed that the boy was depressed following scolding from the school correspondent and the hostel warden.

Charan Reddy, a class 9 student, hails from Viswanathapuram in Kadapa. His parents felt that the boy was not focusing on studies at home and admitted him to the school hostel.

On being informed of the incident the boy's parents first rushed to the hostel and later to the hospital.

A case has been registered by the Kadapa DSP S K Masum Basha and investigations are on.
