A 26-year-old PhD scholar from JNU today allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan of his room at his rented accommodation in south Delhi’s Ber Sarai area this morning.
The deceased, Dushyant, a native of Bareily in UP, left a suicide note in which he mentioned about some personal problems, including family issues and his relationship with a woman, police said.
Dushyant, who was pursuing PhD from Jawaharlal Nehru University, lived in the first floor of a building in Ber Sarai which had around nine single rooms, all rented to students and working men. He allegedly hanged himself from the ceiling fan, the official said.
“We received the call in the morning and rushed a team. A suicide note was found in the room. We have informed his family and initiated an inquest into the matter,” DCP (South) Prem Nath said.
