An IIT-Kharagpur student, who hailed from Andhra Pradesh, was found hanging inside his room, police said on Friday.
“Gangireddy Hanimi Reddy, the second-year M.Tech student, was found hanging on Wednesday night. Initial probe suggests suicide but only the autopsy report can reveal how he actually died,” a senior police official of West Midnapore district said.
According to the police, the security guards at the institute were informed by the students that Reddy’s room was locked for a long time.
“The family members are not ready to accept that Reddy had committed suicide and they demanded a detailed probe,” the official added.
