ALIGARH (UP): A PhD aspirant, who just completed his post-graduation in social work, allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan inside a hostel room in Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) on Tuesday evening.
The student has been identified as Anas Shamsi.
As the news broke, the students created chaos in the hostel and did not allow the police team to enter the premises, alleging that the procter team reached the campus very late.
Aligarh superintendent of police (SP) Abhishek was allegedly attacked by angry students when he arrived at the campus to probe the matter. Although he escaped unhurt, his car was vandalised.
