NEW DELHI: A 21-year-old student at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT) allegedly committed suicide on Friday over sexual abuse, reported the Times of India.
The student hailed from West Bengal and left a suicide note written in Bengali, explaining his struggle with depression due to sexual abuse ever since he was a child. His brother informed the police that he had attempted suicide on April 10 as well.
The suicide note has led the police to register an FIR (First Information Report) under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO).
The body has been shifted to a hospital for autopsy.
