A PhD student of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore committed suicide due to "depression" by hanging himself in his hostel room, a senior police official said on Monday.



Ajay Srichandra was found hanging from the ceiling of his room by his friend at 10.30 am, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central) BNS Reddy told PTI in Bangalore.



"His friend Deeptaroop Nandi, who had earlier called him on the mobile but got no response, went up to his room and rang the bell which also went unanswered. When he peeped from the window, he saw Srichandra's body hanging from the ceiling," he said.



Police, who were alerted immediately, removed the body and sent it to the nearby MS Ramaiah hospital for an autopsy, he said.



A suicide note, addressed to his father found in Srichandra's room, read, "I am sorry dad. The world is not for me. It is too much for me to take," Reddy said.
