Apparently unable to handle exam stress, a third year medical student committed suicide in his college hostel in Kolhapur, police said on Thursday.

Suhas Jaganath Patil (20), student of Rajashree Shahu Maharaj Medical College, hanged himself from the ceiling fan with a nylon rope on Wednesday, they said.

The 20-year-old may have taken the extreme step due to exam stress and burden of studies, police said.

Patil, who hailed from Sakhari in Dhule district, had appeared for his first-term exam and gone to his native place from where he returned on January 5. He was staying in Mai Mangeshkar Hostel of the college.

A note was found in his room's dustbin in which he has sought pardon from his parents and said his brother would fulfil their wishes, police added.
