BENGALURU: A first year PU student plunged to his death from the third floor of his hostel building at Dayananda Sagar college premises in Kumara Swamy Layout on Sunday afternoon.
The deceased has been identified as Jehan Ullah Alam, 17, who hails from Assam. He was studying commerce in Dayananda Sagar college and staying at the hostel.
According to the police, the incident took place around 2.30 pm. Alam came out of his room on the third floor and jumped from the corridor. Though, other students and staff of the hostel, tried to shift him to a hospital, he died on the spot of fatal head injuries.
It is said that Alam came out of his room in a hurry telling a few of his friends that he is going to end his life. Before they could stop him, he climbed the parapet, which is about three feet, and jumped from there.
DCP (South) S. D. Sharanappa told DC that the student had left a note in his room. “He has mentioned the reason for his extreme step but it cannot be revealed. We are investigating the case in all angles,” he added.
However, sources said that Alam had mentioned a few personal issues in the three page suicide note. “The note makes it clear that he had some personal problem and that drove him to take the hasty step. He has also apologised his parents for taking the extreme step,” an official said.
The police have informed his parents, who live in Mumbai, about the tragedy and they are expected to arrive in the city by Monday morning. Besides the parents, the police will also question Alam’s classmates, roommates, lecturers and staff of the college and the hostel to know more about the reasons for the suicide.
