Hyderabad: The 21-year-old Indian Institute of Technology-Hyderabad (IIT-H) final year student M Anirudhya, who committed suicide by jumping to death from his hostel building on the campus on Saturday, reportedly took the decision to end his life a week back. The reason behind the extreme step taken was discovered in an email sent to his friends.

An inquiry revealed that Anirudhya had mailed his friends saying that he was ending his life as he was depressed, they said. In his mail, Anirudhya had said, “The decision to end my life is purely logical, based on my estimation of what the future contains.
