A nursing student of Nalanda Medical College and Hospital (NMCH) in Patna allegedly committed suicide in her hostel room on Thursday night.
Police said the body of Sirat Faruqi, a second year student, was found hanging by a plastic rope tied to the window grille in her nursing school hostel room on NMCH campus in Alamganj police station area on Friday morning.
The reason for her taking the extreme step could not be immediately known as no suicide note was found in the room, Alamganj police station SHO Om Prakash said, adding that her parents had been informed and the body sent for post-mortem examination.
The station house officer (SHO) quoted hostel inmates as saying that Sirat, daughter of Farooq Ayub, was upset after she returned from her village in Begusarai district , 125 km east of Patna, recently.
Om Prakash said the incident came to light when NMCH security guards broke open the doors of the room after the hostel inmates informed the college authorities something was wrong.
He said the hostel girls grew suspicious when Sirat, an early riser, did not answer the knocks at the door even after 7.30 am.
