Yet Another Suicide Case in IIT Kharagpur This Month

“Let me sleep,” was all that the suicide note read found inside the dorm room of Nidhin N, a fourth-year student of IIT Kharagpur. He was found hanging from the ceiling fan of his room. 22-year-old Nidhin N who hailed from Kerela was pursuing aerospace engineering at IIT Kharagpur.

According to a report,

Nidhin N used to set his alarm clock at 2 am every day to wake up and study. On Friday night, when the alarm did not stop ringing, the hostel authorities suspected something amiss.

It is when the hostel authorities broke inside his room and found his body hanging from the ceiling fan at the Nehru Hall B Block.

Police have conducted a probe regarding this matter and confirmed it as suicide, however, his parent suspect it to be a murder case.

This is the second time that a student from IIT Kharagpur has taken such a severe step. During last month an electronic engineering student committed suicideĀ and his body was found near the railway track near the campus.

My question is, When will this stop?
