A 14-year-old boy suffering from a chronic disease in Uttarakhand’s Haridwar, shot himself to death on Sunday evening.

Satvik Sharma, a student of ninth standard in Delhi Public School (DPS), used his father’s licensed pistol and took his life on the upper floor of his house when his parents were downstairs.

“He had been suffering from the disease from eight years and had grown depressed because of it. His body will be sent for postmortem in the morning,” SSI Sanjeev Thapliyal said.

The police have seized the pistol used by the boy, Thapliyal informed.
