A 19-year-student of Satyabhama university in Chennai committed suicide at his home in Hyderabad on Thursday after he was allegedly ragged by seniors in his college.

Krishna Chaitanya, a second year student of B.Tech who hailed from Kukatpally area of Hyderabad, was allegedly ragged by third-year students in the college and this led him to take the drastic step.

He had alleged that his seniors beat him up and also ill-treated him.

Krishna had come home for Diwali, and on Thursday night he hanged himself from a ceiling fan at his home.

"We have recovered his diary. In it, he detailed how seniors were taking away all his pocket money and how they beat him up a few times and threatened him and told him not to tell anyone about the harassment. We are looking into the case for now and we will decide how to proceed," V Sreekanth Goud, Inspector, KPHB colony police station, said.
