(G.N.S) Dt. 30
Bunty a.k.a. Akash Kumar, who lives in Saichak under Beur police station, was found dead on the bed of his residence with a pistol and magazine kept next to him. The incident took place on Monday when the 19-year-old youth with a semi-automatic pistol shot himself in the head while chatting with his girlfriend on a video call inside his residence.
A youth has allegedly shot himself during a video call with his girlfriend in Patna.
The youth was talking to his girlfriend on WhatsApp and threatening to kill himself when she insisted that he take the bullets out of the pistol.
Not realising that the pistol still had a bullet, he allegedly shot himself accidentally.
According to reports, however, the boy had failed an exam and was being pressured by family members to end his relationship with the girl.
The kin of Akash has lodged an FIR against his girlfriend and her family, accusing them of his death.
The police have begun the investigation into the matter to find whether the death was accidental or a case of suicide.
