A third grader has commited suicide in Kurigram after his parents failed to buy him a mobile phone.

The incident took place at the Fulbari upazila on Sunday evening.

The name of the student was Apon Mia, only son of Ainul Islam of Naowadanga union of the upazila. Apon studied in Gorok Mandal Govt School.

Fulbari police station officer-in-charge Rajib Kumar Rai confirmed the matter.

The Union Ward 1 UP Member Anwar Hossain quoting the deceased’s family members said: “A week back Apon wanted a mobile phone, which his father was unwilling to buy because of his son being a child, and also that he could not afford to buy it for financial reasons.”

“But the father promised the boy that he would buy him one. As it was taking a lot of time. The boy became mad with his parents and committed suicide,” Anwar added.

The OC said: “We are investigating the matter, but primarily we suspect it is as a suicide. An unnatural death case is waiting to be filed at the station.”
