IIT-Guwahati student found dead

Guwahati, Sep 18 – A final-year student of the Indian Institute of Technology-Guwahati (IIT-G) was on Friday found dead near his hostel, police said.

Security guards at the institute found the body near the IIT-G’s Brahmaputra Hostel. The staff of the institute later informed police.

We have sent the body for post-mortem examination. It is difficult to say at this moment if it is a suicide or a murder. We are waiting for the post-mortem report, a police official said.

An IIT-G spokesman said the student was identified as Ujjal Shailabh from Bihar.

He was a final-year B.Tech student of mathematics and computing stream. We have informed his family members about the tragic incident, the spokesman said.
