A 25-year-old IIT- Hyderabad student ended his life fearing he might not fo well in his life. The deceased identified as Mark Andrew Charles, hailed from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, was about to complete his Master of Designing course but fearing he might not do well he ended his life.

According to police, Mark was suspected to be suffering from depression. He left behind a six-page suicide note. A police officer said the student mentioned poor grades and failure to get a job as the reasons for his extreme step.

"I don't have a job, probably I wouldn't get one. No one hires a loser. It's amazing to look at my grade sheet. A few more letter and it'll look like an alphabet chart," the youth wrote.

He wrote that he let down his parents by not doing justice to their sacrifice for him. "I never thought I'd end up letting all of you down. Do not miss me, I don't deserve it. I'm not worthy," he wrote.

In his suicide note, he also advised his brother to be brave and keep himself away from things that would spoil his career.  "IT me kaam karte karte apnii life matt bhul jana. Live a little every day. Ek hi zindagi mili hai," Mark wrote.

Mark's parents are expected to arrive in Sangareddy later in the day. An autopsy was conducted on the body and the same was preserved in the government hospital in the town.

Mark, in his suicide note, requested his parents not to bury him and instead hand over his body for medical use. "I'll make a good specimen cadaver to the future doctors of India," he wrote. Circle Inspector Shiva Yadav said they would hand over the body to Mark's parents, who will take a decision.
