A 16-year-old boy allegedly died by suicide in Mumbai on Friday after his father did not allow him to play games on his mobile phone, police said.
According to police, they received information from the Atlanta Hospital on Friday about a teenage boy who was brought dead to the hospital.
Police reached the hospital and recorded the statement of the boy’s father, who said that his son was addicted to playing games on his mobile phone. “Many times his father warned him not to play games for long. Recently, the man got angry and again warned his son about the same when the boy said that he would harm himself if he stopped him,” police said.
On Thursday, at around 11.30 pm, the father snatched away the mobile phone from the boy and told him to go to sleep, over which the boy was upset. The family went to bed later.

On Friday, at around 10.30 am, when the boy’s father woke up, he found his son hanging using a dupatta at the kitchen’s tin shade, police said.
Hoping his son was still alive, the man cut the dupatta and rushed him to Atlanta Hospital, where a medical officer declared him dead before admission.
As the father did not suspect any foul play and did not give any complaint, police registered an accidental death report, said an officer from Malwani police station. Police are awaiting post-mortem report.
