This is the second death by suicide at the Lovely Professional University in Phagwara in 10 days, the protesters allege.

“A first-year student of B. Design at LPU has died by suicide on Tuesday afternoon. DSP Phagwara stated that prima facie the student was having some personal issues, as has been suggested by the note left by them,” the police in Kapurthala tweeted.

The university issued a statement giving a similar reason.

“LPU fraternity is saddened by the unfortunate incident. The initial investigation by the Police, and the contents of the suicide note point towards personal issues of the dead. The university is providing full support to the authorities for further investigation,” said the statement, according to news agency ANI.

The protesting students, who allege that the previous suicide was covered up by the authorities, demand to know the reason behind both cases. They claim the previous incident was “resolved behind closed doors”.
