With the deepest regret we inform of a suicide in HJB Hall. Sunil Kujur, a fourth year student from the Department of Mining Engineering allegedly hanged himself in his room. According to his friends, this was totally unexpected and no clear reason has been ascertained for this act. His friends had to break down his door after he didn’t respond to knocks for a prolonged period of time.
The counselling centre has been making every effort to identify students who are prone to loneliness and depression, with a network of representatives in each hall. Here’s hoping we can prevent such disasters in the future.
