Gupta’s body was handed over to his family members after a post-mortem at the AIIMS Trauma centre. An alumnus of the Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, he had finished school in 2005.
“We do not blame anyone for this incident. The family is not in a state to talk about the incident. He was an IIT student but his death has nothing to do with the educational institute,” said a family member, asked not to be named.
“He was always on top in academics. This is a shock for the family. He had been switching jobs frequently and was also under medication for past some time. He had resigned from his latest job a few months ago,” the family member added.
An IIT official said that Gupta had no association with the institute after graduating. “The student pursued a five-year combined BTech and MTech degree in Computer Science. He graduated in 2010. He has worked with Google in the past but right now we don’t have more information about him.”
Police said Gupta lost his father in 1995. His elder brother works in the United States.
