Ph.D student found dead in JNU hostel

New Delhi: A Ph.D student of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was found dead in his hostel room on Tuesday. The deceased, J.R. Philemon, belonged to Senapti district of Manipur and was pursuing his Ph.D in West Asia studies.

Philemon was staying in the Brahmaputra hostel.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Ishwar Singh said Philemon had not been seen by other students for the past three days but no one suspected anything amiss. The death came to light after some students of the hostel complained of foul smell emanating from his room on Tuesday evening.

"The students informed the university staff who alerted us. We broke open the door in the presence of the students and staff and found Philemon?s decomposed body in the room," Singh said.

Police has not found any suicide note so far and according to the police the most likely cause of death was overdose of alcohol.

"The deceased was a heavy drinker. That appears to have caused his death. Since his hostel room was found locked from inside, there does not seem to be any foul play," said Singh. No external injury marks were found on the victim's body.

The body has been sent for post-mortem and the exact cause of death would be known only after the autopsy report is received, the police added.
