A TEENAGE boy committed suicide in Kampot province on Sunday by drinking a lethal mixture of pesticide and diesel, officials said yesterday. Hong Saren, clerk of Chhouk district’s Trapaing Bei commune, said that 14-year-old Pruy Chanthy died at 11am Sunday morning after drinking a bottle of pesticide mixed with diesel. Hong Saren said the boy committed suicide after his mother slapped him for arguing with his younger brother. Authorities said the boy died en route to the hospital. “According to the neighbour, the mother of the boy did not believe that her son would commit suicide because she slapped him,” Hong Saren said.
