On the same day, in the evening allegedly some hostel students saw Raghu hanging from the roof of is hostel room. The inmates have allegedly removed the body from the noose and have admitted him to the Mcgann Hospital in Shivamogga, where he was declared brought dead.
The move of students who had released his body and had taken him to the hospital without informing any authorities of the hostel has led to suspicion. Raghu hailed from Hosur in Shikaripur taluk. The sources said that his family has no clue about any problem Raghu faced.
