Bengaluru, September 14

A research scholar at the prestigious Indian Institute of Science here allegedly died by suicide at his hostel room on the campus, police said on Tuesday.

The victim, hailing from West Bengal, in his twenties, was having some health issues.

As there was no response to the repeated knocks on the door of his room on Sunday, the IISc authorities with the help of police broke open the door and found him lying dead.

According to IISc officials, the student consumed poison.

Later, the institute in a press release said, “It is with deep sorrow that we announce the death of a student by suicide on September 12 at IISc. The student was pursuing PhD from the Department of Organic Chemistry. We express our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the student.” PTI
