I have a Solution that will reduce pressure on IIT aspirants but do not know how to get this across to HRD Minister of India. Suggestions are welcome. (Ram Krishnaswamy)
A final-year student of the Indian Institute of Technology-Guwahati (IIT-G) was on Friday found dead near his hostel, police said. Security guards at the institute found the body near the IIT-G’s Brahmaputra Hostel. The staff of the institute later informed police.
“We have sent the body for post-mortem examination. It is difficult to say at this moment if it is a suicide or a murder. We are waiting for the post-mortem report,” a police official said.
An IIT-G spokesman said the student was identified as Ujjal Shailabh from Bihar. “He was a final-year B.Tech student of mathematics and computing stream. We have informed his family members about the tragic incident,” the spokesman said.
Last year, two IIT-G students had committed suicide inside the institute.
