A student of Saifai medical college was found hanging on a ceiling fan in Up’s Etawah on Saturday evening.
SSP Jai Prakash Singh said “autopsy report has concluded that cause of death is hanging.”
Himanshu Gupta from Gorakhpur joined medical college in February.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked the District Magistrate and Senior Superintendent of Police to submit a report on the student’s death within 24 hours.
The incident came to light when a hostel mate of Himanshu went to his room to call him for dinner, “He made several knocks on his door, but Himanshu did not respond. He then informed other students and the security guard. When the door of the room was brought down, they found the body of Himanshu hanging from the ceiling fan. As no sucide note was found, it is not yet clear why the boy took the extreme step, the police said.
Meanwhile the family alleged that their son was murdered and urge UP CM to probe CBI into it.
