In yet another suicide on IIT Madras campus, Kuldeep Yadav, 20, a second-year civil engineering student, hanged himself in his hostel room Sunday morning. He was a native of Agra.
In 2011, three IIT-M students had committed suicide.

Cops believe Kuldeep took the extreme step because of some problem in his love life. They found a letter containing Hindi words — eight lines — written in English.

“Maybe he was in love with a Hindi-speaking girl. Phone records show he made a few calls to a woman before hanging himself in his room number 111 in Narmada Block,” police said.

An IIT official said: Around 9.45 am, a neighbour saw through a window that Kuldeep was hanging from a nylon rope. He and friends broke open the door to his room and lowered Kuldeep, who was struggling for life, and called for an ambulance.”

Kuldeep was first taken to IIT Hospital around 10 am and later to a private hospital in Adyar, where he died at 2.20 pm in ICU
