An engineering student from Kerala was found hanging in the hostel room of IIT-Kharagpur on Friday night. Nithin N, 22,  a native of Haripad in Alappuzha, was a fourth-year aerospace engineering student. 

Though the final semester examination was held on Friday, Nithin was not present in the college. Though his friends tried to reach him on the phone, he was not attending calls.  

After the exam, they went to the hostel and found that his room was locked from inside. At this juncture, students broke open the window of the room and found him hanging from the ceiling fan in his room. 

The Police have found a suicide note from the room beginning with the sentence "let me sleep."

Nithin's classmate said he was upset as he could not perform well in the final semester examination.

Nithin is the son of Nasar, SBI Oachira bank manager and Nadiya, an employee of Railway Land Acquirement Department in Kayamkulam. His only sister is a student in ISRO, Thiruvananthapuram
