Rourkela, May 19:

A day after a senior executive of a private insurance company was found hanging inside his rented apartment in the Odisha capital, a second year M Tech student of National Institute of  Technology (NIT), Rourkela was found hanging in his hostel room in the NIT campus here on Tuesday afternoon.



The  deceased, a second year M Tech  student in civil engineering, was identified as Atanu Santra, son of Trilok Santra, a native of  Medinipur district of West Bengal.

Sources in NIT said at about 1.30 PM, some inmates of Satish Dhawan Hall  of Residence informed  the hostel authorities that one of the inmates was hanging from a ceiling fan in his room.

Hostel authorities recovered the  body and sent it to Ispat  General Hospital (IGH), but he was declared dead on arrival.

According to some of his class mates,  Atanu was in a jovial  mood in the pre-lunch session and had attended all the classes. His friends suspect that he  might have taken the extreme step after some sudden development, which
he might have come to know of through his cell phone during lunch hour.

“It is really an  unfortunate incident. We have informed his family members,” said R.K.Sinha, Secretary, Public relations, NIT Rourkela.
