An unfortunate incident unfolded in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, as an 18-year-old class 11 student lost his life while attempting to play an April Fool’s Day prank on his friend. The tragic event occurred during a video call with his friend when the student, in an ill-conceived prank, simulated a suicide attempt.

According to reports, the student, whose identity has been withheld, stood on a stool with a rope around his neck, pretending to hang himself as part of the prank. However, the stool slipped from beneath him, resulting in a fatal accident.

April 1 is celebrated as an April Fool’s Day with people playing tricks on their friends, family and colleagues.

The friend, who was witnessing the prank unfold, immediately alerted the student’s family upon realizing the seriousness of the situation. Rushed to a nearby hospital, the student was pronounced dead by doctors.

Rajesh Dandotiya, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, confirmed the incident and stated that a case has been registered while investigations are underway to determine the circumstances leading to the tragic death of the young student.

“Raghuvanshi made a video call to one of his friends on Monday with a noose around his neck in order to fool him by faking his suicide. But during this prank, the stool on which he was standing accidentally slipped and he started hanging in the air with the noose tightened around his neck, leading to his death,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajesh Dandotia said.

The incident serves as a grim reminder of the potential dangers associated with April Fool’s Day pranks, urging individuals to exercise caution and sensitivity when engaging in such activities.
