KANDAHAR (Pajhwokj): A 13-year-old boy committed suicide in the Zheri district of southern Kandahar province after his father forbade him from leaving the house.

Kandahar police spokesman Haji Zaid told Pajhwok that the incident happened on Sunday morning, the third day of Eidul Fitr, in Sanzari village.

He said Idrees hanged himself to death after an argument with his father.

He said after the father restricted Idrees from leaving home to pass time with friends, he committed suicide.

The boy’s father, Abdul Manan, however, said he did not say something to his son that could provoke him to commit suicide.

“I just told him not to leave the house,” he said.

When the family was doing lunch, Idrees did not come to eat and when they checked the rooms of the house, he was found dead hanging from the ceiling of one of the rooms.

The father said he did not say anything to his son that would prompt him to commit suicide, nor he had ever misbehaved with him before.

Suicides among young people have recently increased in Kandahar, often blamed on ignorance, family misbehavior and their improper upbringing.
