In shocking news, a doctor of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was found dead in his hostel room on Thursday.
Doctor Kunal, 34, had not been eating for past three days. His room was bolted from inside.
The doctor was pursuing his post-graduation in AIIMS’ medicine department and was staying in junior resident hostel in Masjid Moth area near the hospital, they said.
“We received the information about the incident around 11 a.m. today (Thursday) that a junior resident doctor who was also pursuing his post-graduation in medicine has been found dead,” a senior official said on the condition of anonymity.
“To know the exact cause of his death his body has been sent to the forensic department for post-mortem,” he said.
He did not identify the deceased by name nor give any other information on the subject pending the post mortem examination.
Earlier in 2014, a 20-year-old nursing student at AIIMS depressed over her relations with her hostel superintendent and other members of the staff, committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan of her room.
The doctor, a resident of Bihar, was found dead on his bed and there was no sign of any injury on his body.
