Bijapur: Child threatened by teacher over homework dies after suicide attempt

Bijapur: A ten-year-old boy who immolated himself in Bijapur succumbed to his injuries on Saturday. The fourth standard student was reportedly depressed because his teacher had threatened to punish him if he did not do his homework.

The child was admitted to hospital with severe burns last week after his suicide attempt. No case has been registered against the teacher. The incident came to light after the boy was found missing at the school prayer meeting.

The child reportedly bought kerosene and set himself on fire inside his classroom.
