The boy, a class XI student, took this step last night probably after quarrelling with his girlfriend during the chat, he said adding that the boy used to stay in a rented accommodation.
"As he did not come out in the morning, his friends broke open the door and found him hanging from the ceiling. They informed us. The boy was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead on arrival," the officer said.
A complaint against the girl has been lodged by the family members of the boy, he added.
