IANS  |  Vijayawada 

A female student of a medical college in committed suicide by jumping from the college building in the early hours of Thursday, police said.

The incident occurred at the GSL Medical College in Rajamahendravaram (earlier known as Rajahmundry) town in East Godavari district.

Shubhashri (21), a fourth year student of MBBS, jumped down from the fourth floor of the college hostel building. She was admitted to the GSL Medical College, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Hailing from Visakhapatnam, the girl was staying in the college hostel.

The incident has shocked the student fraternity in the town.

Police said they are investigating the reason for the suicide. "All we know at this stage is that she was under medication for depression. We are trying to gather more information."

A few hours before taking the extreme step, the girl sent an SMS to her friend. "I will miss you" was the message, police said.

They said they are investigating the case from all angles in view of the allegations that she committed suicide due to ragging by senior students.

She had allegedly complained to the management about ragging by four students and a committee was also formed to probe the matter.
