A 17-year-old school student attempted suicide last Friday. Identified as Nayan Chakraborty, son of Nirmal Chakraborty, resident of Rangat and student of Bakultala School poured kerosene and set himself on fire. He was rushed to Community Health Centre, Rangat with 70 percent of burn injuries and was later referred to GB Pant Hospital for expert  treatment.
The incident occurred at around 7.45 am, when the Class XI student attempted self-immolation after his parents reportedly  scolded him for not concentrating on studies. He reportedly locked himself in a room of his house and tried to immolate himself. Parents, however, managed to break open the door and rushed him to the health centre. The condition of the boy is presently being monitored by the doctors of GB Pant Hospital.
