KOLKATA: A second-year student of Calcutta National Medical College died after allegedly falling down from the building's terrace, police said today.

Somak Chowdhury, a second-year student of general surgery at Calcutta National Medical College, fell from the terrace of the emergency ward building at around 10 pm yesterday, a senior officer of Kolkata Police said.

"The deceased person was drunk and we are trying to find out whether it is a case of accident or there is some foul play in it," the officer said.

A letter has been recovered from the student's pocket, police said.
