A 13-year-old boy in Bhopal, India, allegedly committed suicide after a row with his younger brother over changing television channels on Saturday evening. The deceased wanted to watch another channel while his brother insisted on watching a cartoon channel.
Upset over younger brother's insistence, the elder brother went to another room and reportedly hanged himself. The deceased, identified as Pandi, was the son of Shetty Rao, a resident of N2, B sector in BHEL township.
His parents had gone to a weekly market. Pandi and with his younger brother, Anees, aged 9, were watching TV at home. According to the police, the dispute began when Anees refused to listen to his elder brother, who wanted to change the channel. Pandi first broke the glass of a cupboard, then went in another room and committed suicide by hanging himself.
The incident came to light when their parents returned. On finding Anees crying, they asked him the reason to which he pointed to the other room. The parents were shocked to find Pandi hanging. Police did not find a suicide note.
