    Ankik and his sister Anandi both met with this unfortunate incident. So were 3 of his friends (2 of whom were BIT MESRA ’09 graduates). May their souls Rest In Peace.

  4. Venky says:

    Terribly sad and shocking.
    May their souls rest in peace.

  5. Arun Bharti says:

    I heard the confirmed news from Tushar. I felt helpless and crying. May his soul rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences are with his family.

    All lives are precious, but those whom we know seem to be all that more precious. What is even more tragic is that someone as bright as this had had his life snuffed out by some semi-literate moron who has been convinced that this heinous act will take him to paradise !!

  7. Akhtar Jameel Ansari says:

    I am a graduate of Communication Engg Dept of IIT Kharagpur from 1974 batch. Ankik’s death has perturbed me to such an extent that I can’t describe.

    I pray that his soul rest in peace and God gives courage to his family to bear this irreparable.
