Mumbai: A 22-year-old MBBS student, who was reportedly depressed over securing less marks in the exams, allegedly died by suicide at his residence in Mumbai’s Kandivali West area. The youth identified as Ajay Jangid (22) was reportedly depressed for the past few days due to low academic scores, which is said to have triggered him to end his life. He was found hanging from a ceiling fan with a dupatta in the hall of his house in Charkop located in Kandivali West on Friday.

Ajay Jangid, who was a second-year MBBS student at the Vilasrao Deshmukh College in Latur, was claimed to be frustrated due to constant poor results and was at his home for the last two months.

According to the police, Ajay had received his marksheet on Friday, which again reflected disappointing results for him, following which he took the extreme step at around 11.30 am. However, no suicide note was recovered from the deceased.

Reportedly, when Ajay took the extreme step, only his mother was at home, who was working in the kitchen remaining unaware of what was happening in the hall. Later, when she came into the hall, she was shocked to see her son hanging from a ceiling fan with a dupatta.
