A 26-year-old PhD scholar from JNU allegedly committed suicide on Thursday 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 some personal problems including family issues and his relationship with a woman, police said.
Dushyant, who was pursuing PhD from the Jawaharlal Nehru University, lived in the first floor of a building in Ber Sarai, which had nine single rooms, 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.
