JNU student commits suicide in Delhi 

New Delhi, March 10 (IANS) A 28-year-old doctoral scholar of the Jawaharlal Nehru University committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan in his rented accommodation here, police said on Thursday.

The student identified as Dushyant Dixit was found hanging from the fan inside his room No.602 at a private paying guest accommodation named Guardian Hostel in south Delhi’s Ber Sarai area on Thursday morning. Dixit was residing on the fourth floor of the building.

The incident was reported to Police Control Room (PCR) at around 9.43 a.m.

Police after preliminary investigation found that Dixit, who hailed from Dhaneta village in Bareilly district of Uttar Pradesh, was disturbed over some family problems.

A suicide note was also recovered.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Prem Nath told IANS that Dixit was residing alone in the room.

“One of his friends knocked at his door at around 9 a.m. on Thursday but did not get any response from inside. He took a table and climbed on it and peeped inside the room from a window meant for ventilation. He then raised an alarm after finding Dixit hanging from the ceiling fan,” Prem Nath told IANS.

Asked if Dixit’s extreme step has any relation with the JNU controversy or with any problem in his studies, the DCP said, “The reason behind Dixit’s suicide has no links with JNU row or problem in his studies.”
