According to the police report, Tajuddin then tried consuming pesticide. A while later, he started doubting the pesticide and thought it will not be enough.

Tajuddin then decided to end his life by setting himself ablaze. He poured kerosene on himself and lit a match. it was being said that the reason behind the boy’s suicide attempt was his parents denying him a motorbike. The jobless youth wanted a two-wheeler and made a request regarding it, many times. But the parents refused. This is when he decided to commit suicide.

The neighbours started seeing smoke coming out of the house and became alert. They immediately informed the parents. But by the time they came home and unlocked the door, it was too late. Tajuddin was already dead.
