“JNU community is grief stricken at untimely and sad demise of Muthukrishnan J. We pray that God be with his family at this critical time,” M. Jagadesh Kumar said in a tweet.
A M.Phil student of Jawaharlal Nehru University, Muthukrishnan, also known as Krish Rajini, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his friend’s room on March 13.
He was reported to have gone to his friend’s house in Munirka Vihar to have food. He had locked himself inside a room afterward on the pretext of sleeping.
The police had to break open the door to find Rajini hanging from the ceiling fan.
Though no suicide note was found on the deceased, a Facebook post, alleged to be written by him days before the incident, indicated a case of disaffection with the authorities and discrimination at their hands.
Police have begun investigating the case.
