AIROLI: A 19- year- old first year en­gi­neer­ing stu­dent hanged him­self in Airoli on Wed­nes­day.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, it ap­peared that Harshshil Shamb­harkar com­mit­ted sui­cide over fear of fail­ing in the exam that he had re­cently ap­peared for.

Shamb­harkar, a chem­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing stu­dent of Datta Meghe Col­lege of En­gi­neer­ing of Airoli, was found dead in his rented flat at in Sec­tor 2 of Airoli. He had hanged him­self by a rope.

The flat had been rented by Shamb­harkar along with two third year stu­dents of the col­lege. Shamb­harkar hailed from Nag­pur, where his par­ents re­side.

The sui­cide note reads: ‘I quit. Sorry Mummy Pappa.’

He had drawn a face with tears on the note that bears his col­lege name. Shamb­harkar had noted three mo­bile num­bers on the pa­per, one of his father and two of his brother. He had re­quested his friend to in­form his fam­ily of his death.

Ac­cord­ing to deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice Shahji Umap, “The boy had re­cently ap­peared for his first se­mes­ter exam.

He had then called a friend in Nag­pur and said the pa­pers had been very dif­fi­cult and he would pass in only one or two sub­jects.”

Shamb­harkar’s room­mate, speak­ing on con­di­tion of anonymity said, “He had come to stay here six months ago. He hailed from a middle class fam­ily and had scored 74% in HSC.”

He added, “He never gave us any inkling of be­ing dis­turbed. His fee had been paid and there never seemed to be any is­sue.”

Po­lice said they are in­ves­ti­ga­tion all an­gles in the case.
