An 11-year-old boy in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur district committed suicide when his parents refused to buy him a touch-screen mobile, police said on Saturday.

Sujal Mehar, son of police officer Biharilal Mehar, was a class seven student of Vivekanand English School in Garoth area of Mandsaur.

"Yesterday (Friday), he had gone to school and found that his friend had a touch-screen mobile. After returning, he asked his parents for a touch-screen mobile too. But they refused and his mother even said he will never get one," Sunil Khemriya, the officer in-charge of Garoth police station, told IANS.

"Soon Sujal went inside the room and using his mother;s sari, hanged himself from the fan," he added.

Sujal was the Mehars' only son after three daughters.

Mandsaur is over 350 km from Bhopal.
