M.Tech student jumps to death from hostel's 7th floor

Bengaluru: A 21-year-old integrated MTech student of International Institute of Information Technology Bangalore (IIIT-B) committed suicide by jumping off the seventh floor of the hostel building inside the college premises in Electronic City in southeast Bengaluru on Friday morning.

The police have identified the victim as Goluguri Sai Sarat, a seventh-semester computer science student hailing from Hyderabad. He is the second son of Kodandarama Reddy, an income tax official, and Sudha Rani, a homemaker. His elder brother, Sathya Raviteja, is studying in the US.

According to the police, Sarat did not leave behind a suicide note and neither friends nor family were able to offer a reason for his action. He had also erased all incoming and outgoing call numbers from his mobile phone.

The police said Sarat jumped off the building around 4.50am after returning from a friend's birthday party. "Tapan Bora, a security guard, heard a loud noise and rushed to the spot. To his shock, Bora found Sarat in a pool of blood. His hands and legs were broken and there were severe injuries on his head," said a police officer.

Police have seized Sarat's mobile phone and will scan call records. "We will get his call detail record (CDR) to find out who he was in regular contact with and to whom his last calls were made," a police officer said.
