A student of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kanpur, Vaditya Nehru, ended his life by consuming poison at Hayathnagar on city outskirts, the police said on Thursday.

The body of the 20-year-old student hailing from a thanda near Miryalguda of Nalgonda district was found in open land near Brilliant Engineering College in Abdullahpurmet. A resident of the locality found the body with froth near the mouth around 4 p.m. and alerted the police. Based on a wallet and a mobile phone found in his trousers, the police eventually identified him as Nehru. “A second year engineering student, Nehru failed in some subjects and ended his life dejected over this,” the Hayathangar Inspector, G.
