"We received a complaint from railway authorities at 12.20 AM stating that they had found a body on the tracks at 11.40 PM on Monday

at Vaddepally. We went to the scene and found the head and body severed. It seems he laid down on the tracks and a train ran over him

resulting in his death," said Kazipet Railway Police Inspector Madhusudan.
    
A suicide note purportedly written by Sainath was found from his wallet, which blamed ragging by seniors as the reason for his death, the

officer said. The note written in English and Telugu stated that "He died due to ragging by seniors."
    
The note urged 'Please stop ragging' and also stated that, 'this situation would not have come had seniors not done like that,' the

Inspector said, adding, there is no clarity on identification of the seniors Sainath was referring to.
    
"We have not received any complaint that he was ragged and hence he resorted to the extreme step. However, we are inquiring into the

matter. Whether he was ragged or if there is any other reason behind his death it is being verified," ACP S Ashok Kumar said.
    
His father and relatives have been told that they can lodge a complaint in connection with the matter if they suspect any foul play, police

said, adding, a case under section 174 of CRPC has been registered and further probe is on.
