NRI Mahesh Subramannian, 20, student of Northern Kentucky University was found dead on Jan 20, at his apartment in the Hidden Valley Apartment complex.

Parents P Subramannian and Sharavathi, state they have been kept in the dark and have received contradictory statements from the university, hospital and relatives that are confusing, and that they suspect he was murdered.

They have written to the US as well as Indian authorities seeking early information on the reasons for his demise. We want to know whether it is a fault of his or something else.

According to the police, Mahesh Subramannian was Computer and electrical engineering technology major died of undetermined causes. An autopsy is being performed to discover the cause. Police do not suspect foul play.

According to Dean of Students Matt Brown:

  • Subramannian had family in the local area, though his parents live in India.
  • He came to America about four years ago to attend NKU's College of Informatics and he was smart and hardworking.
  • Last semester he began a project with Prof. James Walden to test the security of the WiFi on the buses of the Transportation Authority of Northern Kentucky.

Scheben noted the same reason for Subramannian leaving the IMI, saying that the last time he'd heard from him was before the Christmas break. After that, Subramannian stopped responding to e-mails, Walden said.
