An Indian medical student allegedly committed suicide at Barind Medical College in Rajshahi early Saturday.

The deceased is Zafar Sharif, a fifth semester student at the college.

Three days earlier, he came back to the college from a visit to his native home at Murshidabad district in West Bengal, the college officials said.

Zafar hanged himself to death from the ceiling fan in his room at the college hostel, said the college hostel superintendent Golam Mawla.

Later, his friends broke the door and took him to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital, where the on-duty doctor declared him dead.

Quoting Zafar’s friends, Mawla said that his family had recently engaged him to a girl against his will and he had been going through depression as he loved another girl.
