Initial investigations have revealed that pressure exerted from home on studies was the reason behind the Poddala schoolboy's decision to commit suicide.

In this incident, a 17-year-old, grade 11 student of a leading school in Galle ended his life last evening (11), using his father's firearm, which is a 12-bore licensed gun.

He was to sit for the GCE (O/L) examination this year.

The student who has sustained critical injuries was admitted to Karapitiya Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The father of this teenager was a businessman and mother is a teacher.
