Two persons including teenager die by suicide in IIOJK

Srinagar, June 26 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, two persons including a 17-year-old teenager have died by suicide in Srinagar and Bandipora districts.

The teenager, Saqib Ahmad Ahangar died after he jumped into Jhelum River from Cement Kadal in Noorbagh area of Srinagar. The family members told media that their son, Saqib Ahmad Ahangar, jumped into Jhelum River on Friday evening. The 11th standard student has also shot a video before committing suicide and sought forgiveness from his parents for taking this extreme step.

A 32-year-old labourer, Rafeeq Ahmad, ended his life by consuming some poisonous substance in Ajas Bazipora area in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.

It is worth mentioning here that the trend of suicide in IIOJK had increased after Modi-led fascist Indian government repealed special status of the territory and put it under military siege on August 5, 2019.
