M Anirudhya of Secunderabad, a 21-year-old IIT Hyderabad student allegedly killed himself by jumping off the seven-storey hostel building on the campus, reports NDTV.

Initially, it was believed had fallen off the building by accident while talking over the mobile phone, the police said.

However, an enquiry revealed the incident, which occurred early on 31 January, was a suicide as the student had mailed his friends that he was ending his life as he was depressed. He had also consulted a psychiatrist a few days ago, the police said.

"The decision to end my life is purely logical, based on my estimation of what the future contains. Life holds no intrigue anymore, and the daily grind is becoming more difficult with time," Anirudhya said in his mail.

The IIT, in a statement, said it extends its deepest condolence to the family and friends of the student.

Anirudhya, according to police, was a resident of Bowenpally in Secunderabad and a fourth-year student in mechanical and aerospace engineering.
