On Wednesday morning, he hanged himself in his house in Sangupet village.
His father Kishtaiah said that his son committed suicide because the college management did not issue the hall ticket because college fees of Rs 600 was not paid.
Student unions staged a dharna in Jogipet demanding immediate action against the college management. On the other hand, the college management denied all allegations and claimed that the deceased student did not owe any fees to the college and hence the question of denying the hall ticket did not arise.
The college management claimed that when the student came for his hall ticket, the principal and staff had a lunch break and students were asked to wait, but the deceased student went back and did not wait. The Jogipet police is verifying statements made by both sides.
