Student found hanging in hostel room
GREATER NOIDA: A business management student allegedly hanged himself from a ceiling fan in his hostel room in Greater Noida on Tuesday. Gladwin Dass was found dead around 10 am by the hostel warden. Primary investigation has revealed that Dass had gone home recently for two days and returned to the hostel. His family and friends have told police that he had been depressed for the past few months. According to the police, Dass was a first-year postgraduate diploma student and stayed at the hostel in Knowledge Park. “We got information from the hostel warden and after that a police team reached the spot. It seems that he was staying alone in the room meant for two persons,” said Brij Singh Yadav, the investigation officer. Police said they have found a diary and the last entry in it was on September 12. “It was written that the girl he was in love with had chosen somebody else over him. Due to this, he was in depression and wanted to commit suicide,” said Yadav.Banto, an aunt of the 25-year-old, told TOI that his mother was inconsolable. “He just went home recently. We had no idea about what was going on in his head,” she said. Repeated calls to the warden for a reaction went unanswered.
