Bengaluru: Medico ends life in hostel room a day before exam | Bengaluru News – Times of India
BENGALURU: A 20-year-old medical student committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling of his room at Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute (BMCRI) hostel near Chamarajapet on Sunday, a day prior to his examination.
Naveen P, 2nd year MBBS student studying in BMCRI and from Raichur, was found hanging in his room by his roommate around 4pm.
“Naveen had food at 2.30pm at the hostel and returned to his room alone. When his roommate knocked the door repeatedly and received no response, he took the help of others to break open the door,” police said. Police said Naveen had searched online for ways to commit suicide.
“We found in his web search history that he had recently searched how to burst and manage stress. Later, on February 3, he searched about suicide,” an officer said.
A few minutes before taking the extreme step, he searched how many minutes it might take for one to die by hanging. Police suspect he might have been under stress as exams were was approaching. Naveen would join his three friends at the library for studies after lunch but on Sunday, he did not do so. He neither shared his problems with his friends and relatives nor left behind a death note.
Naveen’s father works as a senior officer with a cooperative society in Raichur.
