Engineering student commits suicide

Hyderabad, Nov 21: Unable to bear alleged ragging by his seniors, an engineering student committed suicide by jumping in front of a train on the city outskirts, Railway Police said.

N Bhaskar (19), a second-year engineering student at Kalwakurthy of neighbouring Mahabubnagar district, was a resident of Saroor Nagar here.

The 19-year-old was under depression following ragging by his seniors and took the extreme step by jumping in front of the train between Ghatkesar and Bibinagar stations here, they said.

The police recovered a suicide note purportedly written by Bhaskar in which he alleged he had brought the ragging issue before the college management but it failed to initiate necessary action.

The mutilated body of Bhaskar was recovered this morning and sent for autopsy, police said. A case has been filed and further investigation was on.
