Remember those moments when you are so stressed out and thinking that there is no way out? You shoulder all the frustration and suffer them all alone. There isn’t any solution and death comes into your mind.

Depressed and sad, Shahriful tried to commit suicide out of desperation last Saturday, Aug 1 at Pangsapuri Flat Sri Johor 4C, Cheras.

Though his attempt was not successful, hope only lasted for 5 seconds. This is because the Magistrate's Court ordered him to pay RM3,000 for inconveniencing many parties.

Har? Since when Malaysian courts charge people for a suicide attempt?

If he fails to pay the fine, he will be imprisoned for 3 months.
