A 15-year-old student of a private school here allegedly committed suicide unable to bear the constant bullying by four of his classmates, police said. Also, police today registered a case against the four boys, all 10th standard students of the school at Chintamani here, following a complaint by the deceased's parents. They said the boy in his purported suicide note mentioned that four of his classmates, had teased his manner of walking and described his behaviour as feminine, which had upset him. Unable to bear the taunts, the lad took the extreme step, by hanging himself from a ceiling fan on Thursday at his house in Nerunjalakudi near Lalgudi, 15km from here.
