Noida, Sep 12 (UNI) Disappointed over the marks he secured in his board exams, an 18-year-old boy today committed suicide, here in a park by strangling himself with an electric wire.
An ex-student of Amity International School, Saket, Abhishek had got a compartment in his chemistry board exams this year. He reappeared for the subject and passed with a first division.
