Funny incidents line up at places when people with conflicting interests in Television shows get involved in a quarrel to watch their favorite programs. But a shocking incident unfolded in Maharashtra when an 18-year old youngster did something dramatic to watch an IPL game.
Nilesh Gupta, a boy from Amboli committed suicide when he was not allowed to watch an IPL match. This was in response to the argument with his mother when she asked him to keep a check on the water tank outside but he refused to do so. Therefore, mother angrily switched off the TV.
As per the local police, Nilesh locked himself in a room and was found hanged when the room was opened. This came to notice when his mother was denied any response even when she called him several times. As a result, she raised the alarm and with the help of neighbors, the door of the room could be open and they found him hanging by a cloth. Later, the boy was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.
