THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A 21-year-old engineering student of College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram, was found hanging in his room at his rented residence near the college on Friday. The deceased is David George, son of George, a resident of Ettumanoor near Kottayam. He was a sixth semester civil engineering student. The Sreekaryam police have registered a case of unnatural death.

According to the police, the body of David was found by his room-mates around 12.20 pm when the latter arrived at the residence during lunch break. It is learnt that David was under medication and under treatment for mental distress for some time. This might have prompted him to resort to the extreme step.

On Friday morning, David left the college after attending the first hour citing that he was not well. When his six room-mates reached  after the pre-lunch session, they noticed that his room was locked. But they thought he was sleeping.

An hour later, one of the room-mates noticed that the rope which was used to hang  clothes was missing.

The students grew suspicious and opened the window of the room and found his body hanging. The body was handed over to relatives and taken to Kottayam on Friday evening after an autopsy, police said.
