MYSURU: A 13-year-old boy allegedly committed suicide after he was accused of stealing Rs 100 belonging to his classmate at Bhyraveshwaranagar in Metagalli police limits on Tuesday.
The deceased is Pavan, a seventh standard student in a private school.
According to a complaint lodged by his father Devaraj, his son was humiliated in the school after Rs 80 was found in his bag during a bag-check carried out in the class after one of the students lost Rs 100.
He said he had given Rs 100 to his son with which he bought some books and writing material and Pawan had kept the change in his bag.
Sources said after a student complained to the physical education teacher about his missing Rs 100, a bag-check was carried out during which Rs 80 was found in Pavan’s bag.
Despite Pavan’s pleas that he did not steal any money, the teacher was not ready to believe him and instead reprimanded him. Pavan, who returned home early, took the keys from his mother who was at their neighbour’s home and hanged himself from the ceiling.
