A student of IIT-Delhi allegedly tried to commit suicide by jumping from the 4th floor of Vindyachal hostel. Nitish Kumar Purthi, a student Engineering Physics from Ranchi, tried to commit suicide on Tuesday evening. The 19-year-old student was admitted in AIIMS trauma centre and has suffered fracture in legs.
Nitish was in depression apparently as he didn’t want to study engineering. 19-year-old IIT Delhi student climbed up to 4th-floor terrace and jumped when Abhinandan (Nitish’s roommate) went to call the security guard to help him take Nitish down.
In past four years, seven students committed suicide in IIT-K. Several others also tried to take their life.
