NEW DELHI: A final year MBBS student at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences here allegedly committed suicide in his hostel room on Wednesday.

Twenty-three-year-old Bal Mukund Bharati was found hanging from an Internet cable in his room in the evening. “When Bal Mukund did not respond to repeated knocks on the door, his friend informed the hostel warden. His friends and hostel authorities then broke open the door and found him hanging,” said a police officer.

Preliminary investigation suggests that Bal Mukund was depressed as he had failed in one of his papers. “He had failed to clear his Community Medicines paper and appeared in the supplementary exam,” he said.
