Kundapur, Oct 15, 2015 : A second year mechanical engineering student of the Moodlakatte Institute of Technology has reportedly ended his life by hanging himself from the ceiling fan in his hostel room on October 14, Wednesday evening.
The deceased is Shashank (19), son of Gopal Gowda of Turuvekere in Tumakuru district.
It has been learnt that Shashank who had lost his mother six months ago had been depressed ever since then and this might have possibly driven him to suicide.
He had joined the Institute just a month ago after completing his diploma in the same discipline in Turuvekere.
Shashank has left behind a death note in which he has stated that he saw his mother in his dreams every night telling him that she wants him to come closer to her.
Exams were underway in the college since October 12, Monday. Though Shashank had appeared for th exam on Wednesday morning, he had abstained from the exam in the afternoon.
It was only in the evening when his classmates went to the hostel to enquire about him that they found him dead.
Kundapur police are investigating the case.
