It is shocking to see how young children have no self-control if they aren't given what they desire. We keep on hearing incidents, where teens are losing their cool and taking their lives on trivial things like not being able to use mobile phones, or just because someone at their home scolded them.
Such a terrible incident has been reported from Mumbai where a 16-year-old girl killed herself by consuming rat poison after she was able to play games on a mobile phone.
The case took place in the Janupada area that comes under Samta Nagar police station in Mumbai on Friday night.
The girl was admitted to a nearby hospital where she died the next morning.
