Kharagpur IIT campus

An IIT-Kharagpur alumnus, visiting his alma mater after years, allegedly committed suicide on Monday in the campus by jumping off the three-storey main building.

Sandip Prasad (52), an electronics and communication department student of the 1986 batch, was keen to take up a teaching job at the IIT and had approached a friend who presently teaches at the premier institute. Prasad's friend had made arrangements for his stay in the campus as a guest, following which he came down to the campus recently.

"For the past few days, he was depressed and rarely talked to anyone," a police official said.

Prasad's body was found near the Geology department. His family members have been contacted in Ranchi but they are yet to reach the institute.
