Kolkata: A final year student of R Ahmed Dental College and Hospital was found hanging from the ceiling inside her room at Keyatala girls’ hostel in Golpark on Sunday.
The deceased has been identified as Ankita Sarkar, a resident of Nadia’s Chakdah, and the body has been sent to SSKM Hospital post-mortem. No suicide note has, however, been found in the room. The police have started a probe.
According to a source, Sarkar was found hanging around 11am after which the police were informed. Hospital authorities and other students said Sarkar’s mother was calling her up on Saturday evening but she was not receiving the calls. Her mother became worried as she came from Chakdah to meet her daughter but found her room locked from inside. When the door was finally broken on Sunday morning, Sarkar was found hanging from the ceiling.
