On Sunday, a 28-year-old student from Karnataka allegedly hung himself in Delhi because he was denied entry to the UPSC or civil services exams.
The police said Varun was not allowed inside an examination centre at Paharganj in north Delhi, allegedly because he was late. He killed himself inside a room he rented at Rajendra Nagar.
The police have found a suicide note in which Varun reportedly apologised to his family and begged them to forget him.
Yesterday the UPSC or Union Public Service Commission conducted the preliminary exams for civil services across the country. Varun had been upset when he was turned away from the exam centre, the police said.
One of his friends, who also took the exam, told police that she kept calling him but couldn’t get a response all day. Alarmed she finally went to his home to check on him but he didn’t open the door.
When she peered through the window, she saw Varun hanging from the ceiling fan and called the police.
