Guwahati, April 30 (IANS) A student of the Indian Institute of Technology-Guwahati (IITG) here allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling of his hostel room, police said on Saturday.
Police said that student, S.I. Alam of West Bengal’s Murshidabad, was found hanging around 10.30 p.m. on Friday by a co-resident who informed police. Although the student was rushed to a local hospital, the doctors declared him brought dead.
Alam was a first semester student of M.Sc. (Physics) and he was supposed to sit for his semester examination starting Saturday.
“We have recovered a note from near the body where it was written that no one is responsible for his death. We have sent the note to the forensic science laboratory for matching the handwriting with the deceased,” said Rana Bhuyan, in-charge of the North Guwahati police outpost.
