Tragic Schoolboy Told Friend: “I’m Not Safe In School” Before Being Found Hanged In His Room

A young boy found hanged in his bedroom told a pal he wouldn’t see him for a “long time”, a pre-inquest hearing heard. Asad Khan, 11, also said that he felt “unsafe” in school on the day of his death.

He was found dead by his mum after she forced her way through his locked bedroom door on September 28. His family believe he may have been bullied at the school — where he had been a pupil for only three weeks. Ruth Bundey, representing Asad’s family, told the court he had spoken to a friend on the day of his death and said: “I am unsafe in school.”He added: “You won’t see me for a long time. I am going to skive for a very long time.” The court heard that just days earlier Asad had been having trouble with a computer at school and told the same friend: “Life is unfair. I would say 90-95 per cent of life is hard.” Asad’s family believe he may have forced into completing bullies’ homework for them. “The family say that Asad spent hours doing homework, hours longer than he should spend on his own”, Ms Bundy said.
