A 16-year-old boy from Kashimira locality in Mira Road jumped to death from the balcony of his 13th floor flat. The incident took place on Thursday, and the police are probing whether the boy took his life after he was pulled up for cheating during the prelims ahead of the SSC board exams.

According to the statement given by the boy's grandfather to the police, he was caught copying in the prelims on Wednesday, following which his parents were summoned by the school authorities. He was later allowed to take the exam.
