IIT-Kharagpur student found dead inside hostel room


Kharagpur: The body of an engineering student at IIT-Kharagpur was found hanging from inside his hostel room at the campus on Friday.

22-year-old Nidhin N, an aerospace engineering student from Kerala, was in his fourth year at the institute.

According to police, Nidhin, who had come from Kerala, would set his alarm clock at 2am every night to wake up and study.

Early on Friday, when the alarm did not stop ringing, the other students in the hostel suspected something was amiss.

“Let me sleep,” was all that the suicide note, found in his room, said.

While police sent Nidhin N’s body for post-mortem, the institute authorities declined to comment. This is the third IIT-Kharagpur student to end his life on the campus this year, second within a month.
