Student ends life

A 20-year-old engineering student from Jeppinamogaru died after he jumped off the roof of a five-storeyed building in Hampankatta here on Wednesday morning.

The Mangaluru North police said that Guruprasad (20) was a second year BE student of a college in Valachil. Wednesday was his first day in college.

The police said that Guruprasad’s father Manoj, who works in an insurance agency, dropped off his son in his two-wheeler at the Kankanady bus stop and went to work. Instead of catching a bus to Valachil, Guruprasad went to Hampankatta and entered the five-storeyed commercial complex at around 9 a.m.

The police said that Guruprasad climbed onto the roof of the building and jumped down the passage. A close circuit camera of a shop on the fifth floor captured the incident.

Those in distress or having suicidal tendencies can seek help and counselling from Arogya Sahayavani on Ph: 104.
