G Sai Krishna, first year student studying PG Diploma in Facility Management at Amity University, Sector-125, Noida takes his life in his hostel room. The 21 year old was from Khammam district of Telangana and shifted to the hostel number three, six months ago.
He took his life on Friday by hanging himself with a ceiling fan in hostel room. He shifted to the hostel number three in 2016. Police found a one-page suicide note written in Telugu language but was unable to decode the message due to language barriers. The police informed Krishna’s family about the incident who reached Noida on Saturday. G Deendayal Reddy, Krishna’s father is a lawyer in Khammam district and sessions court. The message was decoded after his family reached Noida. The note said, “They say committing suicide is an act of cowardness, but committing suicide is also an act of courage.” The student did not blame anyone and thanked his parents for all the love and support.
Sai’s friends said that it was around 2 pm when he didn’t join us for lunch, we got suspicious. “A friend went to see him in the room and found him hanging from the ceiling. We immediately rushed him to the hostel warden and alerted other hostellers. Sai was immediately rushed to the Kailash Hospital, Sector 27, Noida. He was declared brought dead,” said sources.
Amarnath Yadav, SHO Sector 39, Noida police station, said that primary investigation shows that the student had borrowed some money and he was unable to pay. “The student’s father said that the student had borrowed some money. The father had also scolded him a few days ago over the issue. We are investigating the matter,” he said. Sources said that the student was involved in cricket betting, and police are investigating this angle too.
Savita Mehta, vice-president communications at Amity Group, said that this is a sad and unfortunate incident. “He was a good student. He also had good attendance. We do not know why he took the extreme step and ended his life. We are extending all support to the family members and also to the police in investigation,” Mehta said. She also said that we have formed a committee to investigate the incident.
A similar incident happened in August when Sushant Rohilla, a student from Amity Law School took his life. He had posted his helplessness over Facebook before he took his life.
