A student of IIT-Mumbai allegedly shot himself dead at his home in Jodhpur and police said a suicide note reflected his "disenchantment" with life.

Siddharth Singh Charan (18), a resident of Jhalra Bera area of Mahamandir, was a second year B Tech student at IIT-M.

Police said his family heard a loud sound from his room in the morning. They broke open the door only to find him in a pool of blood and their licensed 12 bore rifle near him.

Police later recovered a suicide note, in which he wrote about the "meaninglessness" of life.

His father Gajendra Singh Charan is the Sub Divisional Magistrate at Chipa Barod in Baran district.
