A 26-year-old PhD scholar from JNU allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan in his room at a rented accommodation in south Delhi’s Ber Sarai area on Thursday morning.

The deceased, Dushyant, a native of Bareilly in UP, left a suicide note in which he mentioned some personal problems, including family issues and his relationship with a woman, the police said.

Dushyant, who was pursuing PhD from Jawaharlal Nehru University, lived on the first floor of a building in Ber Sarai which had around nine single rooms, all rented to students and working men.

We received a call in the morning and rushed a team. A suicide note was found in the room. We have informed his family and initiated an inquest into the matter.
