A schoolboy apparently killed himself at Sarkarpara Mahalla in the district town on Friday night.
The deceased was identified as Ashik Jamal, 14, son of Abed Ali and a class eight student of River View High School.
Quoting family members, Golam Mortaza, officer-in-charge (operation) of Sadar Police Station, said Ashik hanged himself on the rooftop around 10:30pm.
On information, police recovered the body.
It is unclear what drove him to take his own life.
