A 22-year-old B.Tech student of Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) in Nagpur allegedly died by suicide in his hostel room, a police official said on Thursday. Divyanshu Rohitkumar Roy Gautam, a final-year Computer Science Engineering student from Purnea in Bihar, was found dead in the morning, he said.

โ€œMost students had left for holidays after exams. Gautam had requested permission to stay in the hostel for two extra days. On Thursday, housekeeping staff noticed a strong smell from his room (F-73). They alerted hostel supervisor Sameer Thakre, who called police,โ€ the official said.

โ€œAfter the room was unlocked, we found him lying on the ground with blood oozing from his head. He had hanged himself with a sheet tied to the ceiling fan. The sheet tore causing him to fall. He may have ended his life on May 27,โ€ the official said.

In a note recovered from the spot, he cited personal reasons for this extreme step, while college authorities said the deceased was under stress due to poor marks, the official added.
