A 19-year-old youth allegedly committed suicide at his residence in Kurla here on Friday, as he was apparently upset over not getting a mobile phone of his choice from his family, a senior police official said.
The deceased, Nadeem Sheikh, hanged himself from the ceiling fan of the kitchen around 4 am, the official said.
“Sheikh wanted a particular mobile worth Rs 37,000, but his elder brother gave him a cell phone worth around Rs 20,000,” he said.
“Upset over not getting the phone of his choice, he took the extreme step,” the official added.
A case of accidental death has been registered, police said, adding that further investigation into the case was on. PTI
