Madurai: Tirunelveli woke to a shock this morning as the body of a teenage boy was found hanging at the city’s flyover near Vannarapettai area.
A note found in his pocket said he was committing suicide because of his father’s alcoholism and requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister E Palaniswami to prohibit the sale of liquor in the state, the police said.
The police said the boy has been identified as a class 12 student of a school in Namakkal, who had appeared for his board exams and was waiting for results.
In the note, the 17-year-old wrote that his father should not be allowed to perform his last rites. He even tasked another family member with it, the police said.
