The body of a

26-year-old research scholar was found hanging from the

ceiling of her room of a building in Jadavpur area, police

said Sunday.

Sukanya Poddar, who was pursuing research in

microbiology at the Jadavpur University, was found hanging

from the ceiling fan by means of a ligature at a room on the

second floor of a building on Baghajatin Station Road under

Jadavapur Police Station limits, the official said.

Early investigations revealed that Sukanya, who was a

part-time teacher at a nearby college, was to get married

later this year.

"We had to break open the door of the room to find the

woman hanging from the ceiling fan with her face covered in a

black scarf. The body was found at around 11.50 am and was

rushed to the nearby MR Bangur and Hospital where she was

declared 'brought dead' by doctors. We are looking into the

matter," he said.
