A student of Jahangirnagar University reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan at Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall of the university early Friday.

JU registrar Abu Bakar Siddiq said a group of residential students of the dormitory saw Adnan, a student of 41st batch of Accounting and Information System Department, hanging with the fan at room number 450 around 12:00am.

The students then broke open the room and took Adnan to the university medical centre. However, its doctors sent him to Enam Medical College and Hospital where he was declared dead.

It is not still clear what prompted Adnan, hailing from Manikganj district, to kill himself, said registrar Abu Bakar.

He said Adnan’s family members took his body to his ancestral home in the morning.

A pall of gloom descended on the campus following the incident.

Meanwhile, JU vice-chancellor Farzana Islam visited the dormitory.
