An 11-year-old boy, studying in Class 6, on Monday allegedly committed suicide at his home at Diguva Kolaput village under Dumbriguda mandal area of the district.

Police said Korra Balakrishna, a student of Government Ashram High School, Killoguda, had been asked by school authorities to get an Aadhar card so that government schemes like scholarship could be linked to his account.

However, he could not get the card either in Araku or Visakhapatnam. His fingerprints could not be recorded digitally as three fingers of his hand were conjoined, so Aadhar registration was allegedly denied to him.

Dejected, he returned home and hanged himself when others in the house were asleep, said police sub-inspector B Ramakrishna.

District education officer M V Krishna Reddy said as per the directions of tribal welfare minister Ravella Kishore Babu, inquiry was ordered and deputy director (tribal welfare) will submit a comprehensive report.
