Reports in Public TV said that Sarat was good in studies and did not have any bad remark as a student. He was in the fourth year of the integrated MTech Course in IIIT. He allegedly chose to jump when all his friends and hostel inmates were in sleep.
Sai Sarat's father Kodanda Reddy is an officer in the Income Tax Department in Andhra Pradesh. The family is financially well-settled. Even the College authority has stated that Sarat was a good student.

A case in this regard has been booked by the Electronic City Police.

After Kavya's death in Alva's School, who was found hanging in her hostel room, many other incidents were reported where students in hostel had allegedly committed suicide.

Especially in Sarat's case, there were no complaints about him in studies or any other problem specified. This death looks mysterious and so far there is no mention about any death note.
