A 17-year-old college student allegedly ended his life by consuming poison over his parents' refusal to buy him a bike in Chuadanga.
The deceased was identified as Sabbir Hossain, a resident of Sadar upazila of the district. He was a Class XII student of Chuadanga Government College.
Family sources said Sabbir consumed poison on Wednesday night as his parents didn’t buy him a bike despite his repeated pleas over the past few days.
Later, he was rushed to Chuadanga Sadar Hospital where he died during treatment around 11pm, said Mahabbur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Chuadanga Sadar police station.
The body has been kept in the hospital morgue for an autopsy, he added.
