GULMIT, GOJAL: A teenage boy was found dead in Kamaris, Gulmit, early Saturday. Mirza Shah’s body was found hanging from a tree in an orchard near his home. Early reports suggest that Mirza killed himself apparently in a suicide act; however, his body has been transferred to the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital for post-mortem.
Mirza had left a status on his Facebook profile, asking his friends for forgiveness and prayers on Saturday morning, apparently before hanging himself.
“Hi, gud morning friends, i m going for a mission pray for me and if i been mistaked i hope u u forgive me..mirzi,” he wrote on Facebook.
Reports also suggest that he had sent text messages to some of his contacts, asking for forgiveness and prayers.
The autopsy report would establish the real cause of death of Mirza.
It is not for the first time that young boys have been found dead in Gojal Valley. Similar cases have taken place in the valley, especially Passu village, over the last few years.
