A college-girl in west Delhi on Thursday committed suicide a day before her English exam, police said.

Heena Singh, 20, who hanged herself in her Uttam Nagar home, was a second year BA (bachelor of arts degree) student at the Delhi University's School of Correspondence Studies, the police said.

Upon discovering her body, family members rushed her to the Deendayal Upadhyay Hospital, where she was declared dead.
