    Default IITian commits suicide because of denied campus placement

    Apparently depressed over the denial of a campus placement, a 26-year-old student of the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur (IIT-K) committed suicide Saturday, police and institute officials said.

    "G. Suman, a final year student of M.Tech, was found hanging inside his hostel room," director IIT-K Sanjay Dhande told IANS.

    According to the police, Suman took the extreme step as he was denied a campus placement.

    "We have learnt that Suman was quite upset as he did not get any placement offer from the companies that visited the campus this time," police inspector Alakh Narayan Trivedi told IANS.

    too much pressure, mainly from home leads to students taking drastic issues,
    these cases should be dealt with seriously

    yeah, parents also put too much pressure on kids. they dont realize what kind of harm they do to their own children.

    The sad thing is that no steps are taken to prevent this, and the conditions are being made worse everyday.

    DCSMon,

    What steps do you think can be taken? If you ask me, I would say we can do counseling for these kids (Should I call a M.Tech graduate a kid? Well...) but then again how far will it work? It again depends on the candidate's mentality.

    We can only console a crying baby but making it to stop crying is too hard. Even if you succeed in it, there is NO guarantee that kid will not cry again. It's all depends on the individual's mental strength! We should blame the way they are brought up or their friends!

    Hi Sachin,

    Good sharing this kind of news. Rated-5.

    I think the great factor is inferiority complex deep in his mind. G. Suman should have taken appeal step to his case. Self determination is very well needed in any person, not necessarily only for a person called student.

    That is why, clever step will take nowhere but only smart step will take to somewhere in the circle of somebody.

    This is the problem, when need lesson but don't want to learn.
