A 21-year-old student of the IIT Hyderabad allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the seven-storey hostel building on the campus.

Initially, it was believed Anirudhya of Secunderabad had fallen off the building by accident while talking over the mobile phone, the police said.

Later, enquiry revealed the incident, which occurred early Thursday, was suicide as the student had mailed his friends that he was ending his life as he had been depressed, they said.

His mail said he had contemplated taking the extreme step last week, the police said.

In his mail, Anirudhya had said, "The decision to end my life is purely logical, based on my estimation of what the future contains. Life holds no intrigue anymore and the daily grind is becoming more difficult with time."

Apparently, he had consulted a psychiatrist a few days ago, the police said.
