IIT Kharagpur student found hanging in hostel room

Kolkata: An IIT-Kharagpur student, who hailed from Andhra Pradesh, was found hanging inside his room, police said on Friday.

"Gangireddy Hanimi Reddy, a second-year M.Tech student, was found hanging on Wednesday night. Initial probe suggests suicide but an autopsy report can reveal how he actually died," said a senior police officer of West Midnapore district.

The officer said security guards of the institute were informed by the students that Reddy's room had been locked for a long time.

"The family members are not ready to accept that Reddy committed suicide and have demanded a detailed probe," the officer said.

IIT's registrar B.N. Singh said there was no academic pressure on Reddy.

"He was a good student. MTech second year involves project work. The project completion time and the placements both are far away. So, there was apparently no academic pressure."

"As per the supervisors, he was doing well. His death is very unfortunate. We informed the police at the right time and the rest is a matter of investigation," Singh said.
