Jamshedpur: The body of a fourth year student of National Institute of Technology (NIT) was found hanging at his hostel room in Adityapur, about 5 km from here, in adjoining Saraikela-Kharswan district of Jharkhand on Wednesday.

Vinay Pant, a meritorious fourth year student of electrical engineering, was found hanging in his hostel room and taken to Tata Main Hospital here, institute sources said.

He was declared brought dead, hospital sources said.

The exact cause behind the incident could not be ascertained, but we are investigating the matter, Acting Director of NIT, S B L Saxena said.

Saxena, who went to the hospital on being informed, said he could make any comments only after discussing with fellow students and concerned officials.

Pant, a resident of Uttarakhand, had already been offered job by two companies including Jindal Steel during the campus selection process and had recently cleared the MBA entrance (CAT test).

The incident took place barely four days after a third year student of a polytechnique institute allegedly committed suicide after he failed to get a job in the ongoing campus selection recently.
