IIT-Kharagpur student found hanging in hostel


A fourth-year aerospace engineering student at IIT-Kharagpur (IIT-KGP) was found hanging inside his hostel room at the campus on Friday.

According to the reports, 22-year-old Nidhin N was from Kerala. He used to set his alarm clock everyday for 2:00 am to wake up and study.

On Friday night, when the alarm didn't stop ringing, the students suspected something amiss and alerted the authorities. Later some of the students broke open one of the window panes and saw his body hanging from the ceiling of his room at Nehru Hall B Block.

"Let me sleep," was all that the suicide note found in his room said, reported The Times of India.

Reports said that Nidhin was the third IIT-Kharagpur student to end his life on the campus in 2017.

The Police are investigating the matter and to find a reason behind the incident.

Last month, the body of a third year electrical branch student of IIT-KGP, Sana Sri Raj (20) was found near the railway tracks near Turipara.
