Teen who committed suicide to be buried in Doha

April 12, 2011

The body of Shahid, an 18-year-old Indian student who reportedly committed suicide after bidding his friends goodbye on his Facebook account, was to be buried in Doha, his family said.

“The body will be buried in Abu Hamour cemetery after evening prayer tomorrow, if everything goes as expected,” a source close to the family said, quoted by Qatari daily The Peninsula.

Shahid was found dead at a construction site in Mansoura after he reportedly jumped from a building under construction.

His family is from Thikkodi near Kozhikode in Kerala. Shahid was brought up in Qatar, where his parents are long-time residents. His three sisters are also in Doha.
