A student from the Symbiosis Institute of Mass Communication (Under Graduate) allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in his hostel room at Vimannagar on Thursday afternoon. The reason behind him taking the extreme step could not be ascertained.
Vimannagar police identified the deceased boy as Rishik Sharad (19) from Hyderabad. He was in the first year of Bachelor of Communication Studies. Police said that his classes had started about six months ago.
Senior inspector Prakash Shah said, "The incident came to light around 4 pm when his roommate returned from college and found the door locked. He then informed the college authorities, who called us. We have not found any suicide note. We are investigating into the case."

We have informed his parents. His father's elder brother stays in Pune." The hostel is run by the institute's parent organisation.
