Cuttack: The body of a girl student was found hanging in the hostel room of a college in Adaspur here on Friday.
The girl was a student of Plus III Commerce and was studying in the first year. Today morning her body was spotted by hostel staff while the premise was being cleaned.
The room’s door had to be broken as she did not respond to the calls of the cleaning staff. Her body was hanging from a ceiling fan.
The hostel superintendent informed local police which rushed to the spot and conducted a preliminary investigation.
Prima facie it appeared that the girl committed suicide, however, the cause behind her death could be revealed after the post mortem reports arrive, a police official said.
The local police have registered a case of unnatural death and started a probe.
