student from Chirayinkeezhu addicted to online games hangs himself | Kerala News


Thiruvananthapuram: A class 8 student hanged himself at Chirayinkeezhu in Thiruvananthapuram district after allegedly being addicted to online games.

The deceased is Sabith Mohammed, the 14-year-old son of residents of Chirayinkeezhu, Shanavas and Sajeena. His parents said they only found out about the mobile games he was playing after their child died.

Sabith, who returned home after class on November 8, had been happy to wear his new uniform. The boy who then entered his room was later found hanged.

Seeking to know the reason for the suicide, the cell phone was checked and password-protected games and applications were found. The teenager used to get his hands on his mother’s phone under the guise of studying online. His father, who is overseas, or other family members at home were unaware of the boy’s addiction to online games.

Earlier, when Manorama News highlighted the dangers of online gambling, the Chief Minister told the Assembly that special police surveillance and advice would be organised.
