A 21-year-old B Tech student allegedly hanged himself in his room at a private hostel in the city, police said today.
Abhishek Gurung, a student of B Tech final year at DIT College, was found hanging from the ceiling fan of his hostel room by his friends last night when they returned from a stroll after dinner, they said.
Prima facie, it appears that the youth took the extreme step due to disappointment in love or pressure of studies, they said.
No suicide note was found from the spot. His body has been handed over to his family based in Bhimtal in Nainital district.
