A 22-year-old civil engineering student was allegedly found hanging at his relative’s house in the city, on Tuesday.
The deceased is identified as Babu, a native of Tumakuru and was residing at his relative’s house at Srinagar in the city for the past few days. Babu, an Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activist, was under depression since a few days, it is learnt. The incident of his death came to the light when his family members returned back home, on Tuesday.
Police have recovered an eight-page suicide note written to his family members, and in the note he has mentioned not to conduct the autopsy on his body, but instead wrap him up in an orange coloured cloth and perform last rites as per RSS rituals by sprinkling holy water from Chamundeshwari temple and Srikanteshwara temple and later immerse the ashes in the Indian Ocean in Kanyakumari.
