Hackerrank Delete a Node solution

Problem Statement

This challenge is part of a tutorial track by MyCodeSchool and is accompanied by a video lesson.

You’re given the pointer to the head node of a linked list and the position of a node to delete. Delete the node at the given position and return the head node. A position of 0 indicates head, a position of 1 indicates one node away from the head and so on. The list may become empty after you delete the node.

Source code:

  Delete Node at a given position in a linked list   
  Node is defined as   
  struct Node  
    int data;  
    struct Node *next;  
 Node* Delete(Node *head, int position)  
  // Complete this method  
   Node *cur;  
   cur = head;  
   if(position == 0){  
     head = head->next;  
     int i = 0;  
     while(cur!= NULL){  
       if(i == (position)-1){  
         cur -> next = (cur->next)->next;  
       cur = cur->next;  
   return head;  

** The above solution is my own code and it may not be the optimal solution or optimal way to approach the problem but it passes all the testcases in Hackerrank. So if you have any optimal approaches feel free to paste the code as the comment below..... :) :) :)
