A 19-year-old college student died under mysterious circumstances at the Air Force Command Hospital on Friday night.

In a statement to police, Sharma’s mother, Kamesh, said that her daughter complained of stomach ache on Friday night. When the pain worsened, Sharma was rushed to the Air Force Command Hospital, but passed away later that night.

Considering the peculiar nature of the case, police believe that Sharma committed suicide. Although an autopsy was conducted at Bowring Hospital on Saturday evening, the postmortem report is not yet ready.
