Student found dead in varsity hostel room


A postgraduate student at Savitribai Phule Pune University was found dead in her hostel room on Monday in a case of suspected suicide.

Chaturshringi police said that Reshma Gaikwad (22) was a second-year student of M.Sc. Botany and hailed from Shirur Taluk.

College authorities said Gaikwad’s roommates found the hostel room bolted from inside. When no one opened the door despite repeated knocks, the roommates alerted the security guards.

A police inspector said, “A guard saw Gaikwad’s body inside the room through a crack in the wall. They then broke the door open and informed the police.”
