New Delhi: A 20-year-old trainee nurse in a government hospital here was Friday found hanging in her room in a girls' hostel, police said.

Vineeta Chauhan, a resident of New Ashok Nagar area of east Delhi, was in the third year of the nurse training course in Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital. She was found hanging in her hostel room by her roommate shortly after midnight.

Police received a call at around 2 AM.

Her roommate had gone to her room at around 12.15 AM and found the door locked from inside.

"She knocked the door but there was no response. She then called other inmates and the warden of the hostel. A guard managed to enter the room through a window and found Vineeta hanging," a senior police official said.

A suicide note addressed to her father, who works in the Union Home Ministry, has been recovered in which it is written that she did not wish to stay in the hostel and he should have taken her home. The note also mentions the names of three boys, the official said.

However, she has not blamed anybody for taking the extreme step. She has asked two boys to join the nursing course while for the third, she has written that she missed him.
