Medical Dialogues had earlier reported that a PG medical student in her early thirties allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself inside her hostel room. The deceased was associated with KAP Viswanatham Government Medical College and the attached Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital.
The incident came to light on August 23, 2019, when the PG medical student did not report to duty late that night at the attached Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital. Moreover, her hostel room at Periya Milaguparai remained shut for a long time. Developing suspicion, the co-occupants of the hostel and the hospital staffs reportedly broke open the door. To their horror, they found the PG medical student hanging.
