Mysterious death of teenager leaves Mysuru police puzzled

Mysuru: A 13-year-old boy was found hanging at his residence at Bogadi village of Mysuru, making way for suspicion.

Rohith Gowda is the deceased teenager. It is said that on Wednesday night, Rohith had ventured into his room with his mobile when all of the family members were watching television. It is suspected that he may have hanged himself then.

He was the student of a private school and was addicted to playing games on mobile.

What has created an air of suspicion around his death is the fact that the family members performed his last rites in haste without even informing the police about the death.

It is said that all efforts of the police to gather details from the family members met failure. The family is not even keen on lodging a complaint with the jurisdictional police-Saraswathipuram station.

The police are theorising if the Blue Whale Challenge may have played a role in the boy's death.
