A teenage girl and a middle-aged man committed suicide in two separate incidents in Lahore on Tuesday.
Zara, 16, hanged herself from a ceiling fan in the first case.
According to police, the girl lived with her family in Lahore’s Data Darbar area and committed suicide when her family did not buy her a cell phone.
Similarly, 46-year-old Javed Iqbal killed himself in the same way in the same area.
According to police sources, the deceased was living in a rental house. Furthermore, authorities have taken both bodies into custody and have initiated legal procedures.
In related news from Karachi last week, a man and a woman ended their lives by drinking poison at Sea View Beach, a common hangout for lovers.
The two were allegedly married to separate partners. They were transferred to a hospital after being discovered and passed away shortly afterward.
