Hyderabad: A 20-year-old engineering student allegedly died by suicide on Monday, a step that his family later attributed to alleged harassment by executives of a loan repayment app. A preliminary investigation by the police revealed that the deceased, a third-year BTech student, had borrowed money from other students and friends besides the amount he had borrowed from an online loan app. He had reportedly lost money playing online games and was upset about his financial debts. According to the student's father, despite repaying Rs 3 lakh of the loan amount, agents from the app reportedly continued to harass him, even calling other family members and relatives for repayment. 

Subsequently, the boy hung himself.
