Sambalpur, Oct 20: A BCom final-year student of Gangadhar Meher (GM) University in Odisha’s Sambalpur district died by suicide in his hostel room on Thursday.
The student was identified as Ghanashyama Karuan from Narla in Kalahandi.
Police have recovered a suicide note written by the student before his death. In the suicide note, he has expressed his frustration over continuous failure in competitive exams. He has further mentioned that he loves his mother the most and has requested the police not to trouble his family members for his suicide.
Notably, the student had come back to his room after appearing for the mid-semester examination. However, his roommate after returning from college found the door locked from inside. When he did not respond after repeated knocking, his roommate informed the hostel authorities, who informed the police.
Police opened the door and found the student hanging from the fan of the room. Further investigation in this regard is underway.
