Police said that student, S.I. Alam of West Bengal’s Murshidabad, was found hanging around 10.30 p.m. on Friday by a co-resident who informed police. Although the student was rushed to a local hospital, the doctors declared him brought dead.

Alam was a first semester student of M.Sc. (Physics) and he was supposed to sit for his semester examination starting Saturday.
