They arranged for a ladder and climbed up the balcony on the backside of the house, the officer said. They saw Pranav hanging from the ceiling, brought him down and took him to a nearby hospital, he said.
At the hospital, he was declared brought dead. No external injury was found on the body, police said.
According to his flatmates, Pranav was suffering from depression, police said, adding that the investigation is underway.
