PATNA: A second year student of IIT-Delhi, Ridam Kumar Singh (19), committed suicide at his residence on Mandal Path under Shastri Nagar police station area on Tuesday.
Ridam's father Narendra Kumar Singh, a chief engineer with Indian Railways, was transferred to Patna from Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, four months back. The family hails from Agra. Ridam came to Patna one month back to spend his vacation, police said.
"We are trying to ascertain the reason behind the suicide by searching his mobile phone, laptop and other belongings found in his room. His parents have no idea why he committed suicide. He hanged himself from the ceiling fan in his room. When he did not come out, his parents entered the room and found him hanging and rushed him to the railways hospital where he was declared brought dead. There was no suicide note. Initially, the family did not inform the police about the incident," said Shastri Nagar SHO R K Singh.
