New Delhi: A 25-year-old MBBS student of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), reportedly upset over prolonged illness, committed suicide by hanging herself from a fan in her hostel room, police said on Thursday.
Supriya Meena, a final year student who hailed from Surat in Gujarat, was living in the girls hostel inside the AIIMS campus.
Hostel authorities found her body around 11 a.m. when they broke down the room’s door. They took the action after her mother informed the hostel attendant that there was no response from her daughter despite repeated calls.
A suicide note, which said she was upset over her prolonged illness, was recovered from her possession, according to a police officer.
This was the second suicide in AIIMS in two months and the third this year. All the victims were women students.
Varnika Pandey, 29, a senior resident doctor in the dental surgery department, had also hanged herself in her hostel room on August 13. Kirti Gakhar, a 25-year-old first year student of MD Pharmacology, ended her life by consuming poison in her hostel room on March 5. [Source: BS]
