April 15, 2014

HYDERABAD: An 18-year-old student preparing for Eamcet committed suicide at his college hostel on Monday.

The victim was identified as Vinay Kumar, son of Kotesh from Madugula in Mahbubnagar. Vinay had completed Intermediate from Chaitanya junior college at Kothapet recently and was undergoing coaching for Eamcet while staying at the hostel on the college premises.

On Sunday morning, friends of Vinay found him hanging from an iron rod in the bathroom of the hostel. "At 5.30 am, Vinay's friends noticed that the bathroom door was latched from inside. They grew suspicious. When the hostel administrators forcibly opened the door, Vinay was found hanging from the shower rod with a bed sheet," Saroornagar inspector B Naveen Reddy said.

There was no suicide note.

During preliminary probe, police found out that Vinay's fear of poor performance in the upcoming entrance test could be the reason behind the suicide. A case was registered under section 174 (Suspicious death) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).
