SRMIST ANGUISHED OVER STUDENT SUICIDE

Expressing anguish over the incident of a final year IT student Sree Raghav of the SRM Institute of Science and Technology ending his life on Monday, the Registrar N Sethuraman stated that as a policy support and guidance had been consistently offered to needy students.

In a statement, he noted that Sree Raghav was good in academics and a note found in his pocket had said nobody was responsible for his decision.

The psychiatry department of the medical college at SRMIST had made it a practice to offer support and guidance to students facing any problems, he said.

“We have a faculty mentoring programme where one faculty takes care for 20 students. The medical college psychiatry department is offering psychological counselling for the needy students,” he added.
