Late on Thursday, a partially charred body of a 22-year-old man was found on the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras campus.
Since April, the man was from Kerala and worked as a temporary project staffer on the campus. He lived outside the campus and that they found an 11-page note from his home on Friday, saying he could not cope with his daily work and did not want to trouble his parents, police reported.
An investigator, who preferred not to be named, claimed that the man wrote if he cannot fulfill daily tasks, he won't be able to rise to get a work of higher level.
IIT Madras described it as an “unfortunate and tragic incident”.
“We are shocked and deeply grieved, and convey our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of the departed soul. The police are investigating the incident and the Institute is fully cooperating with the authorities.”
