Police recovered the hanging body of a college girl from a private dormitory in Ranishankoil upazila headquarters yesterday.
The deceased was Sima Rani Bhoumik, 23, daughter of Nikhil Chandra Bhoumik of Damol Malipara village, and a student of Ranishankoil Degree College.
Police said Sima hanged herself from the beam of a room at Sayem Mess around 8:00am when her roommate went outside for private tuition.
As Sima did not respond after repeated knocks by other boarders, they informed police who later recovered her body from the room by breaking open the door.
The body was sent to Thakurgaon Sadar Hospital for autopsy, police said, adding that the reason behind the suicide could not be known immediately.
