A 20-year-old engineering student allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan in Borivli on Saturday morning. The student, identified as Chinmay Deoolkar, was in his third year of civil engineering at Vasai's Vartak Engineering College. The boy had asked his parents to skip the parent-teacher meeting that was supposed to be held at the college the next day.

Deoolkar's father Anil is a police constable attached to Malad police station. On Friday night, the boy complained of headache to his father. On Saturday morning, when the latter left for work, his elder brother, Chetan, knocked on Deoolkar's room to wake him up. When there was no response, he pushed open the door, only to find Deoolkar hanging by the ceiling fan with a rope. "He was rushed to the nearby hospital, where doctors declared him dead on arrival. No suicide note was found. We haven't come across any reason for such a drastic step at least in the preliminary inquiry," said an officer from Borivli police station. The cops have filed ADR in the matter and investigating the case.
