NEW DELHI: An 18-year-old nursing student was found hanging in her hostel room in north Delhi's Burari this morning, with police suspecting it to be a case of suicide.

The police were informed about the incident at 11:40 am by the hostel authorities of Sant Parmanand Nursing College.

Kiran Sharma, a first-year nursing student, had told her friends in the morning that she would not attend the classes and would stay back at the hostel since she was having stomach ache, the police said.

Post-mortem will be carried out tomorrow while her mobile phone is being scanned to ascertain the reason behind her taking the extreme step, the police said.
