A 26-year-old PhD scholar of Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University today allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at his rented accommodation in south Delhi’s Ber Sarai area this morning.
The deceased, Dushyant, a native of Bareily in UP, left a suicide note in which he mentioned some personal problems, including family issues and his relationship with a woman, police said.
Dixit was found hanging from the fan inside his room No.602 at a private paying guest accommodation named Guardian Hostel.
Dushyant lived on the first floor of a building in Ber Sarai which had around nine single rooms, all rented to students and working men. He allegedly hanged himself from the ceiling fan, the official said.
“We received the call in the morning and rushed a team. A suicide note was found in the room. We have informed his family and initiated an inquest into the matter,” DCP (South) Prem Nath said.
A suicide note was also recovered.
Nath said that Dixit was residing alone in the room.
“One of his friends knocked at his door at around 9 a.m. on Thursday but did not get any response from inside. He took a table and climbed on it and peeped inside the room from a window meant for ventilation. He then raised an alarm after finding Dixit hanging from the ceiling fan,” said Prem Nath.
