A twelve-year-old boy has allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling hook in Sriganganagar city with family members claiming he was apparently upset over actress Jiah Khan's death.

Babu, a fifth class student of Gurunanak Basti in Sriganganagar district, on Tuesday committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling hook in his home, investigating officer (IO) Ramesh Kumar told PTI on phone on Wednesday.

The deceased's family members told the police that the boy was repeatedly watching Jiah's suicide episode on TV news channel, and he was probably upset and ended his life when no one was inside the house, the IO said.

The boy's body was handed over to his father after postmortem, he added.
