Police suspects it to be a case of suicide but no evidence including any suicide note has been found from the site.
A third-year student of Ram Lal Anand College was found hanging in his south Delhi residence at Nanakpur on Thursday, 30th May 2019 afternoon. Utkarsh Sharma, a 22 year old B.A. (Hons) Political Science student is suspected to have committed suicide though no conformity has been established and the police is still probing the incident.
Sharma used to live in a government quarter with his parents who were not in town at the time of the incident. His parents had left for their hometown in Uttar Pradesh when the incident took place. When his calls went unanswered, the worried parents asked Utkarsh’s brother living in Palam to reach him. As he reached his house in Nanakpur, he found his brother death. Utkarsh further informed Devendra Arya, DCP of South Delhi. He said that an inquest proceeding under Section 174 of the CRPC has been initiated to investigate the case.
As the President of Ram Lal Anand College, Utkarsh was quite known amongst his colleagues and mentors. His principal, Rakesh Kumar Gupta remembers him as a smiling student. “I came to know about it. He was a good student and I had spoken to him around 21st or 22nd May. He had told me his exams went well. He always had a smiling face,” Mr Gupta told the Press Trust of India.
Utkarsh’s semester exams ended on 21st May 2019. He apparently last interacted with his college friends around the same time. Minali Gupta, the Vice President of the Student Union of Ram Lal Anand College told that she last met him on 21st May and is in a state of shock with his untimely demise.
