The body of Nimita Kumari was taken away by her parents on Tuesday afternoon for her last rites in Bihar, leaving NIT a campus in mourning.
The tech cradle will hold a formal condolence meeting for the 20-year-old electrical engineering student on Wednesday after getting to know that her last rites have been completed.
Classes stayed suspended for the second consecutive day after the Sunday suicide. It was a poignant moment when Nimita’s elder brothers Sumit Das and Nitish Das went to room No. 203 of Ambedkar Hostel, where she stayed, and collected her belongings.
Nimita’s roommates Swati and Pinky, in deep shock, could not answer the questions of her brothers on why she took the extreme step.
Earlier on Tuesday, Nimita’s post-mortem was also conducted by a medical board according to the directives of East Singhbhum deputy commissioner Himani Pande at MGM Medical College in Dimna. The procedure was recorded on camera.
NIT, which has constituted a 12-member probe team to investigate her suicide on Monday, will also suggest ways to prevent these tragedies in future, institute director Rambabu Kodali stressed.
Police have kept Nimita’s mobile and laptop for investigations.
