In a shocking incident, on Thursday morning a 26-year-old woman jumped off the second floor of a hostel building at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi.

The police said the woman had come to the university a day before to meet her husband who is pursuing PhD from JNU and staying at the Brahmaputra hostel.

The woman was found injured outside the hostel by security staff and university students and was rushed to a hospital nearby in an ambulance.

The police stated no suicide note was found at the spot and interrogation of the husband is underway.

According to a report on The Indian Express, DCP (Southwest) Ingit Pratap Singh was quoted saying, “We received information from the hospital about the woman. She was declared dead by the doctors in the morning. It is suspected that she died by suicide, but the reason is unknown.”

The report further stated that a local inquiry was conducted, and police found that the woman went to the hostel to meet her husband who had recently complained of seizures. “The man wasn’t feeling well and had called his wife. We don’t know what happened between them, but the woman is said to have jumped off the second floor in the morning,” said DCP Singh.

However, Amit Goel, additional DCP, Southwest Delhi, said a woman died by suicide at Brahmaputra Hostel in JNU, where she was staying with her husband. The husband was in the bathroom when the incident took place this morning. She was an epilepsy patient, was hospitalised and discharged after seizures last night. The couple married 3-4 months ago, and the victim's husband is a PhD scholar.
