NEW DELHI: A BTech student of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras died by suicide today on campus. The incident happened a month after a second-year student hailing from Maharashtra hanged himself in the hostel due to stress.
As per reports, the student was pursuing third-year MS in Power Electronics at IIT Madras. He hailed from Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra. The incident came to light after he was found hanging from the ceiling of his room.
The student had allegedly left a suicide note behind, the contents of which were not confirmed by the Chennai Police, the Free Press Journal reported.
Several students staged an overnight sit-in protest after the student pursuing MS in electrical engineering died by suicide on February 13, 2023, “demanding responsibility from the administration”. The same day last month, another student of the institute, hailing from Karnataka, made a bid on his life by consuming some tablets.
