A 22-year-old man allegedly ended his life inside the emergency ward of the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) on Friday morning by hanging himself from the grill of a staircase. Police said the man, a resident of Gopalganj in Bihar, was a cancer patient and was under treatment for the past five years. He probably killed himself because he was upset over his illness, police said.
