Kumta: A 28-year-old Kumta based UPSC student has allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in Delhi on Sunday, 3rd June, after being denied entry into the UPSC examination hall.

The victim has been identified as Varun Chandra, a resident of Kumta in Uttar-Kannada district.

According to reports, the deceased was not allowed into the examination hall on Sunday in north Delhi’s Paharganj area because he was few minutes late. He allegedly hanged himself in a room he rented at Rajendra Nagar in the city.

It is reported that Varun requested the authorities to allow him to appear for the exam, but was denied. Falling under depression due to his denial, Varun took this extreme step.

The police also found suicide note in which Varun wrote that the rules are fine but there should be some relaxation at times and also apologised to his family and begged them to forgive him.

Sources informed that, Varun’s body was discovered by one of his female friends, who also took the exam. She told police that she kept calling him but couldn’t get a response all day and worried about the chain of events that had transpired earlier in the day, she went to his rented accommodation, where he was staying, to check on him. She said Varun did not open the door.

Varun is son of Dr. Subhash Chandra, who is a scientist by profession. The victim is survived by the parents and sisters.
