In a shocking incident, a 15-year-old boy allegedly jumped to death from an under-construction building in Noida after he was scolded by his parents, who had asked him not to play games on his mobile phone.

Last night, the Class 7 student had gone missing from his home after his parents scolded him, officials said.  Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Elamaran G said, "The boy was peeved over the scolding for playing mobile games and left home around 8 pm. This morning, his body was found from a nearby-under construction building. He had allegedly jumped off the building last night."

"The body has been sent for a post-mortem examination and the matter is being probed. Forensic experts have also collected evidence from the spot," the officer said. 

In two other cases, two people allegedly committed suicide in Noida and Greater Noida on Wednesday, police said. 

One of them aged 22 lived in the Sector 49 police station area of Noida, while the other aged 35 lived in the Bisrakh area of Greater Noida, police added.

Both bodies have been sent for autopsy and further proceedings are being carried out, police said.
