A 21-year-old B.Sc. nursing student lost her life by suicide at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. The second-year nursing student, who is from Sheikhpura in Bihar, was found hanging in her hostel room on Tuesday morning.

The Delhi Police received a call at approximately 11:30 AM, prompting immediate action. Upon arrival at the scene, the police found the lifeless body of the student suspended from the ceiling fan by a dupatta. Authorities quickly initiated procedures, including taking custody of the body for post-mortem examination.

Investigations into the incident revealed a note left by the girl. In the note, the student expressed her struggles with depression, which she attributed to academic demands from her nursing education and preparations for the Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) test. It was revealed that she was experiencing recent challenges, failing two subjects on her final exams.

The crime team has inspected the spot and the parents of the girl have been informed. No foul play is suspected so far. A suicide note was found in which the girl expressed that she was in depression due to her nursing studies and preparation for the BPSC exam

AIIMS, a premier medical institute, is known for its tough academic programs, which draw students from all over the country. However, the challenging curriculum and strong competition can have a negative impact on students' mental well-being, demanding thorough efforts to protect their health and strength.

As the investigation continues, authorities are urged to delve deeper into the underlying factors contributing to the student's distress. Additionally, there is an urgent need for improved mental health support services and counseling facilities within educational institutions to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
