JAIPUR/MUMBAI: Upset over constant ragging at the Mumbai-based Advanced Training Institute, a 20-year-old student -- identified as Satyendra Kumar -- committed suicide by jumping in front of a running train in Gangdhar area of Rajasthan’s Jhalwar district on Monday.

Satyendra left behind a suicide note in which he blamed seven seniors for harassing him and said he was being tortured at the college and his hostel for the past three months. The resident of Kurukshetra in Haryana claimed he could not appear in a recent mid-term examination because of the harassment.

His family members told the Jhalwar police that the matter had been reported to the college administration but, when the ragging did not stop, they had advised Satyendra to return home. He was supposed to come home by Monday but he got off the train near Chowmahala railway station and jumped in front of a train on Monday afternoon.

Maharashtra labour secretary Kavita Gupta said the institute, which was under the jurisdiction of the Union labour and employment ministry, had not reported such an incident to the government. "But the government will go into the case and take appropriate action if any such incident has happened and is reported to us," she said.

The institute is located on V N Purav Marg in the Sion-Chunabhatti and comes under the jurisdiction of Nehru Nagar police station. Senior police inspector Prakash Kale, too, said the police station had not been informed about the incident.

Rajasthan cops said two railway guards saw him walking towards the tracks around 4.30pm on Monday. They even asked him what he was doing there but he replied that his family lived nearby. "He jumped in front of a goods train and died on the spot. We recovered a suicide note from his trouser pocket," a police officer said.

Jhalwar cops said they would send the report to the Mumbai police where a case under Section 306 of IPC could be registered against the students mentioned in the suicide note.
