Depressed over failing to get a job, a 22-year-old physically challenged final year engineering student allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in his hostel room in Lucknow.

Rinku Varshney, a native of Muriyan gate in Hathras, committed suicide last evening, police said, adding the incident was reported by the victim's friends.

Rinku's room was found locked from inside and his body was found hanging from the ceiling fan, they said.

Rinku, a final year student in Computer science stream in the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Lucknow, was depressed as he could not get a job, while some of his classmates got job placements, police said.

Police has so far ruled out any foul play though no suicide note has been recovered from the spot.
