ISLAMABAD, May 18: A student of grade-6 in a local school of Faisalabad, the industrial city of Pakistan in Punjab province, could not withstand the stray behaviour of his teachers and committed suicide by setting himself on fire.
Later, he died of fatal burn injuries.
13-year old Omer tried to commit suicide by self-immolation when he gets the news of his restriction from his school due to his two-day absence.
The young age could not assimilate the fact and to vent his frustration, went inside the room and set himself on fire.
Omer’s father informed the local media that his son’s name was removed from the class attendance by the head school teacher for his two days absence as they were attending a marriage ceremony.
He said that they had informed the school administration through an explanatory note, but it was not accepted.
He also accompanied his child to school but the obdurate behaviour of head teacher remained the same.
The doctors tried their best to save Omar’s life but he could not survive.
Ghulam Fareed, chief head teacher also rejected the claims and justified his stance.
