17-year-old kills himself after parents refuse to buy him motorcycle

A 17-year-old student in Tamil Nadu committed suicide after his parents refused to buy him a motorcycle, Malaysia Nanban reported.

The boy apparently demanded for the motorcycle as he would be going to college next year but his parents refused as he was not eligible for a licence to ride yet.

The boy, furious, left his house at midnight without his parents' knowledge. He hid under a trailer parked by the roadside near Chennai-Bangalore highway and placed his head under the rear tyres of the trailer.

When the driver started driving away, the boy's head was crushed.

The driver, who was stunned, immediately called the police.
