Hyderabad: An IIT topper from Hyderabad, who was pursuing a Master’s degree at the North Carolina State University in Raleigh City of United States, has reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself in his hostel room. It is now suspected that Shiva Kiran, 25 took the extreme step after being depressed over his grades in the first semester exams of the MS course.

Kiran shared the room with two other students, both Chinese.

No suicide note was reportedly found but the student had withdrawn the fees he had paid for the second semester. He had told his family he wanted to come home and prepare well for the next semester.

Kiran had reportedly topped the Engineering course he completed at IIT Hyderabad and left for the US for higher studies in August 2015. The family is waiting for the body to be brought home. His father is a pharmacist working with the government in Hyderabad.
