A 24-year-old medical student from Tamil Nadu who was pursuing Doctor of Medicine (MD) at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), committed suicide in Chandigarh on Monday morning. The news has left the entire medical fraternity shocked as the reason behind the death is as disturbing as the incident. Dr Krishnaprasath Ramasamy, who was a resident doctor at the college, was reportedly depressed and wanted to return home.

He was found hanging from a ceiling fan at his hostel room and has not left a suicide note behind. However, one of his recent photo captions on Facebook hint that he wasn’t completely fine at the college. “I hated every minute of training, but I said…Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion,” the caption on his Facebook cover photo read.

The incident was reported when Krishnaprasath did not report for duty on Monday morning. As he didn’t respond to any calls as well, the worried doctors, decided to check up on him at his room. However, the door was locked from inside. The guards had to break open the door and found Ramasamy hanging from the ceiling fan.

Ramaswamy was a topper in his batch and came from a humble family. He is survived by his parents and an elder sister. Ramaswamy’s father is a priest at the Rameswaram temple while his mother is a housewife.

A doctor in the hospital told The Tribune that even though Ramaswamy had topped exams entrance exams conducted by the PGI, AIIMS and JIPMER, Puducherry, he chose PGI over all other institutes. “He was an introvert. We never thought Prasath would take the extreme step,” he said.
