A senior health ministry official was found on Wednesday hanging from the fan in his home in New Delhi, police said.


MP Singh, 49, who was posted as deputy director at Indian Council Of Medical Research (ICMR), was found in his Pragati Vihar hostel room in south Delhi's Lodhi Colony around 9.30 am. 

"Prima facie it seems that Singh has committed suicide. We have been told that he was under depression for the last few days," a police official said.
