A second year MBBS student of the Great Eastern Medical School (GEMS) was found dead in the hostel room on the college premises near Srikakulam town on Sunday.

The police said that the girl committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling of her room. It is learnt that the girl was depressed over her studies following her failure in the semester examinations held recently.

K Aishwarya Sai (20), was a native of Phirangipuram in Guntur district. While most of the residential students went home to celebrate the Sankranti festival, about 30 of them including Aishwarya stayed back at the hostel to prepare for the examinations. She reportedly failed in her semester examination and had been worried over her studies.

On Saturday morning after having lunch, Aishwarya reportedly went into her room and locked herself from inside. Some students went to her room on Sunday morning and grew suspicious when she did not open the room.

When the hostel staff and students broke open the doors, they found her hanging from the ceiling and informed the police.

It is learnt that Aishwarya was depressed over the last few months after she failed in some subjects in her previous semester.

In a suicide note left in the room, the deceased asked her siblings to study well and apologised to her family members for taking the extreme step.

The girl’s father said that his daughter spoke to him over the phone on Friday and appeared very normal. He alleged that the college staff had been pressurising her regarding studies which could have driven her to end her life.

He urged the police to investigate from this angle. The police sent the body for post-mortem and started investigation.
