Engineering student shoots self in Gurugram

Our Correspondent
Gurugram, August 18

A 20-year-old engineering student allegedly committed suicide at his apartment in Sector 84 here last night.

The deceased allegedly shot himself with an illegal gun while his family was away at a hospital to meet his ailing father.

No suicide note was recovered from the spot and the family failed to pinpoint any reason behind the extreme step. The police are investigating the case.

The deceased has been identified as Oshit Sharma, a first-year B.Tech student at Ocean Engineering, Chennai. He had come home during the lockdown period and was staying with his parents and brother at Antriksh Heights.

Around 10 pm on Monday — when Oshit's mother and brother had gone to the RN Hospital, where his father was admitted — he purportedly shot himself with a gun, said sources.

His family members said they had no clue about the source of the weapon. The gunshot was heard by neighbours, who informed security guards. The police were also called. Since the cause behind the suicide had not been ascertained, the police were looking into his mobile phone call details.
