Second Alleged Suicide Death

A second student has died after allegedly trying to commit suicide by drinking paraquat.

The teenager was one of three friends who allegedly drank paraquat on Monday evening.

The ages of the group were from 13 years to 14.

One teenager died on Tuesday from internal injuries, from allegedly drinking the paraquat, a toxic fast-acting herbicide.

This was confirmed by Police Spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri. The final group member, a  student, remains admitted at the CWM Hospital.

Police blamed psychological pressure for the deaths, in an initial statement.
