Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh), Apr 4: An MBBS student of Baba Raghav Das Medical College on Tuesday committed suicide by hanging herself from her hostel room ceiling fan. His friends said that depression could be one of the reasons for his decision to take the extreme step.

“Sumit Siddharth, a 2014 batch MBBS student, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in room number 119 at new UG hostel and it appears that he took the extreme step out of depression,” Principal of the medical college Ganesh Kumar said.

No suicide note was found from his room, the police said. SP city Vinay Kumar Singh sent his body for a post mortem.
