IIT-Madras student commits suicide

Chennai, August 21, 2012, DHNS:

The suicide by a 22-year-old girl student of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) -Madras at her  campus hostel room on Tuesday sent shock waves across the state.

The student, Manasa, who joined the MTech Programme in chemical engineering three weeks ago, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her hostel room this afternoon, sources in IIT-Madras told Deccan Herald here.

Hailing from Karim Nagar District of Andhra Pradesh, Manasa, apparently, left no suicide note, according to police sources, even as investigations by the jurisdictional Kotturpuram Police was continuing late this evening. The victim had used a ‘dupatta’ to hang herself, sources added. “It is extremely shocking and painful,” a faculty member at IIT-Madras said.

The tragedy has plunged the student community at the campus into gloom. Manasa’s body has been recovered by police and kept in a Government Hospital mortuary here.
