According to an ETV report, around 13 students of IIT-Kanpur have committed suicide since 2005.

The report says that each time a student takes the extreme step, the institute management forms an inquiry committee but usually its recommendations remain in files and go unnoticed.

Noteworthy, Manjunath, a B.Tech 3rd year student, had committed suicide on Wednesday by hanging himself from the ceiling fan in his hostel room.
