Police suspect he may have gone into depression while at work in the US.
Family members told police that Gupta had many friends at IIT-Delhi and would visited them regularly. Police, however, have not found anyone with whom Gupta met on the IIT campus before taking his life. Police are scanning his cell phone details and will look at his call records to get more details.
On Friday evening, family members initially refused to talk about Gupta’s death.
The two relatives who spoke to HT did so on the condition they would not be named. “He was being treated for depression. A doctor in CR Park had been treating him. He was also taking medicines. This morning, when he left home for IIT, we had no idea he was going there to end his life. We do not suspect any foul play,” said Gupta’s cousin.
Meanwhile, the Delhi police have launched a probe in the case and said they would visit the IIT campus again over the weekend to try and find eyewitnesses who may have seen Gupta climbing the Industrial Research and Development Unit building within the campus.
