A first-year engineering student of a private college in Hyderabad allegedly committed suicide in Telangana's Warangal district after being ragged by his seniors.

The 18-year-old has been identified as V Sainath (18), a native of Ramakrishnapuram in Adilabad district of the state, who had left his hostel at Medchal on Monday afternoon and was not seen since.

The police later found Sainath's body in the Warangal district a railway track with his head severed off. A suicide note in his wallet read `Please stop ragging ­ no one should face similar insulting incidents as faced by me'.

"We received a complaint from railway authorities am stating that they had found a body on the tracks at Vaddepally. We went to the scene and found the head and body severed. It seems he laid down on the tracks and a train ran over him resulting in his death," Kazipet Railway Police Inspector Madhusudan, told Deccan Chronicle.

The police told Sainath's father and relatives that an investigation is on, while adding that they can lodge a complaint if they suspect foul play.
