A Presidency University student was found hanging from the ceiling fan of his room in his residence here, the police said.
As Swapravo Bhakta was not spotted for a long time, his mother found the door of his son's room locked from inside in the night of Wednesday. She called her neighbours and informed police in North 24-parganas district.
Police broke open the door and found the 21-year-old student hanging from the ceiling fan.
No suicide note was found.
Swapravo used to stay with his mother as his parents were separated a couple of years ago.
The post-mortem examination report is yet to reach the police.
