In a shocking incident, a 13-year-old boy in Odisha’s Koraput district allegedly committed suicide after his parents stopped him from playing games on his mobile phone, the police said on Wednesday. According to the police, the boy was studying in Class 8 at a private school. In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, he was attending online classes on his mobile phone.

His parents had found him playing games on his mobile phone during online classes. Although his parents had tried their best to dissuade him, he ignored them, said Dhiren Patnaik, IIC, Koraput town police station.
