Vijay Kumar, 27, of Patancheru, had earned his bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy from Nims and was doing internship at the hospital, Punjagutta sub-inspector (SI) U Srinivasulu Reddy said. Around 11 am, the hospital staff found Vijay hanging from the staircase grill on the sixth floor of the old Nims block. He had used a nylon rope to take the extreme step.
“There was no suicide note. We are yet to ascertain the reason for the suicide,” the SI said. Police have registered a case under section 174 (suspicious death) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) and shifted the body for post-mortem. The body was handed over to his family in the evening.
