Visakhapatnam: Parents and relatives of 20 year old Kaki Parameswara Rao, the final year B.Tech student at IIT Guwahati, have raised doubts over his death. He was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his hostel room on Thursday afternoon.
The student hails from K Kotapadu area of Vizag district. His father K. Venkata Rao runs a paan shop.
“We don’t know what happened at IIT-Guwahati on December 24 evening and we are not in a position to trust the institute professors. I know my son was brilliant, brave and confident. He would not take such a drastic step over low grades,” said Mr Rao.
His maternal uncle N. Venkata Rao said Parmeswara spoke to him December 23 and said he would come home for Sankranti.
Neither authorities nor Parameswara’s friends have spoken about what happened. The mortal remains of the student were sent to Delhi on Friday and will reach Vizag city on Saturday morning. His family has said they are waiting for the post-mortem report and fight for justice.
