Covai Post Network

A 13-year-old boy killed himself by consuming an insecticide for killing ants. His friend who also consumed the chalk form insecticide is being treated at Coimbatore Medical College Hospital.

Siva, son of Elumalai of Periyakuyili, took the extreme step as his parents scolded him, sources said.

Siva was a school dropout after his Grade VII and his parents are said to have scolded him for not being obedient. He, along with friend Dinesh (15), a Grade X student of Idayarpalayam Government Higher Secondary School, decided to end his life.
