Bizarre; boy kills self while on video call with girlfriend
In a rather bizarre turn of events, a boy in Patna allegedly shot himself while on a video call with his girlfriend.
The incident is said to have happened on Monday when the 19-year-old youth used a semi-automatic pistol to shoot himself in the head while chatting with his girlfriend on a video call inside his residence.
Identified as Akash Kumar, a resident of Saichak under Beur police station, was found dead on the bed of his residence with a pistol and magazine kept next to him.
Police sources said that the youth was talking to his girlfriend on WhatsApp and threatening to kill himself when she insisted that he take the bullets out of the pistol.
Not realising that the pistol still had a bullet, he allegedly shot himself accidentally.
Police suspects that the it is because the boy had failed an exam and was being pressured by family members to end his relationship with the girl.
The kin of Akash has lodged an FIR against his girlfriend and her family, accusing them of his death.
The police have begun the investigation into the matter.>
