"Shrikant Mullappa (22), an electrical branch student committed suicide in the IIT campus before noon and this was discovered late in the evening," PTI quoted Assistant Commissioner of Police (western region) Bipin Bihari as saying. He added that no suicide note was found.
Mullappa was found dead when his friends broke into his room after repeated attempts at getting in touch with him failed. The reason for the suicide is still not known.
"We suspect academic pressure could have been the reason behind Mullappa hanging himself as some of the fellow students have told us that he was lagging a semester," Bihhari said.
