Thirunelveli: In a shocking incident, a teenager commited suicide by hanging self from a railway overbridge here in the wee hours of today, after he was upset over his father’s drinking habit.

In an emotional suicide note, 17-year-old Dinesh Nallasivan said, "Let’s see at least now whether the Tamilnadu Chief Minister and Indian Prime Minister will close the liquor shops. Else I will come as spirit and eliminate the liquor shops."

Expressing anguish on his father, he said, "Appa.. please stop drinking at least after my death... Since you are still taking alcohol, you please don’t perform final rites to me. Only then my soul will rest in peace."

The incident has sent shock waves across Tamilnadu and has revived the demand for prohibition. In a statement here, former Union Health Minister and PMK youth wing leader Anbumani Ramados called for prohibition and

blamed the government for the boy’s death.
