Was Shashank Lefty?Then how can you write on your right hand. We usually use right hand to write. This is not suicide because one cannot write with left hand and the people who has done this have used the marker because it wont be erased.

Something Fishy. The investigation in depth is required because the family did not have any clue about it when he went for morning walk.

The suicide cases are at a rise in the district and most of them are teenagers. It is the reality shows, mobiles and craze for bikes are one which tempt them to do so. No wonder Telivision is an idiot box . There is no house without a TV and a mobile.
