In the suicide note, he sought apology from his parents and stated that he failed in his previous six attempts, but he would be successful this time. The police are verifying whether he was referring to attempts to commit suicide in the past or his failure to crack IIT entrance exams.

The student, Hanuman Sharma, was a resident of Kumher in Bharatpur. "He was staying at a rented accommodation in Rakadi area in Sodala and preparing for IIT entrance examinations. His cousins stay at a rented accommodation in the neighbourhood. When they didn't hear from him for 24 hours, one of them went to his room on Tuesday afternoon. The landlord told him that Hanuman hadn't come out of his room since Monday night," said a police officer.





On receiving no response from the room, they broke open the door and found Hanuman hanging. They informed the police.
