suicide

MUMBAI: A 26-year-old student of IIT Bombay committed suicide by jumping off the terrace of his hostel located on the Powai campus here in the early hours of Monday, police said.


Prima facie, the dead student was undergoing treatment for depression, a senior officer said.


Darshan Malviya had written a message on the board in his hostel room, stating that no one should be held responsible for his death, a Powai police station official said.


Malviya's body was spotted by a watchman outside the seven-storey hostel building who called up an official of the institute. Later, police were informed.


Malviya was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead, the official said.


The student, who hailed from Madhya Pradesh, was pursuing a post-graduate course at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology from last July.


His family was informed, the official said.


Police had registered a case of accidental death, said Powai police station senior inspector Budhan Sawant.


"The student had written a message on the board in his hostel room which shows he was undergoing treatment for depression. Further investigation is under way,” he said.
