“Her roommate had gone to attend classes. When she returned she found the room locked. She made phone calls to Nagashree which went unanswered. She then informed the security,” an IIT spokesperson said.
The officials then broke the door and found the girl hanging from the fan and found a brief suicide note. “Engineering sucks,” she wrote in the suicide note, according to Saikia, Additional Superintendent of Police.
“She seemed to be depressed that she had to pursue engineering. She also wrote how she could not fulfil the expectations of her parents,” Sanjib Saikia said.
“It has been barely one-and-a-half months since she joined the course,” the IIT spokesperson said adding that she had undergone the mandatory counselling session for first-year students recently. “Nothing abnormal was noticed in the interaction,” the spokesperson claimed.
