A 19-year-old student of the Chhatrapati Shahu Ji Maharaj University allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself in her hostel room on the campus, police said Wednesday.

Alinkrita Kashyap, a resident of Kannauj and a student of second year B.Sc (Biotechnology), was found hanging in her hostel room, Station House Officer, Kalyanpur, Satish Singh said.

According to preliminary investigation, the girl was depressed after failing to clear an exam, police said.
