Keralite student found dead in IIT Kharagpur hostel

22-year-old Nidhin N, a aerospace engineering student from at IIT Kharagpur was found hanging inside his hostel room at the campus on Friday.
According to police, Nidhin used to set an alarm to get up early in the morning and study. Friday morning was no different, apart from the fact that the alarm woke up others in the hostel except Nidhin.
This made the hostel authorities suspicious, and some of them broke open one of the window panes to find his body hanging from the ceiling of his ground floor room at the Nehru Hall. The police was soon informed and later broke open the door to seize the body.
IIT-Kharagpur has informed the family of the student and police have sent the body for post-mortem. The matter is being investigated.
This is the second such incident at IIT-Kharagpur in recent times. Last month, the body of a student from the electrical engineering department was found dead on the railway track close to the campus.
