A 21-year-old student of the IIT-Hyderabad committed suicide on the college campus, said police officials on Saturday.
The student identified as Anirudhya From Secundrabad jumped off the seven-storey hostel building.
Prima facie, it was believed that he had fallen off the building accidentally while talking over the mobile phone, the police said.
A further investigation in the incident revealed that the probe-team had found emails that Anirudhya had written to his friends explaining the reason for his suicide. His mail said he had contemplated taking the extreme step last week, the police said.
According to reports, Anirudhya had consulted a psychiatrist a few days ago.
“The decision to end my life is purely logical, based on my estimation of what the future contains. Life holds no intrigue anymore and the daily grind is becoming more difficult with time” read an excerpt from the mail.
The institution released a statement conveying deepest condolence to the family and friends of the deceased.
