Ahmedabad: A Zambian student allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at an apartment here, police said on Tuesday.

Mulaiya Zuka Syakavuba (20), a Bachelor of Arts student, was found hanging at her home in Nilima Park Society where she lived alone, on Sunday night, they said.

"Syakavuba was a third-year student of St Xavier's College of Gujarat University. Her body was found hanging from the ceiling of her apartment," inspector of University police station A S Bariya said.

A neighbour of the girl informed the police about the incident yesterday.

He said the reason behind suicide is unclear as no suicide note was found from her possession.

"We have scanned her mobile phone. She was constantly in touch with a boy whose number is saved in her mobile phone as 'Sugar'. We have filed a case of accidental death but have not been able to ascertain the reason behind the extreme step," he said.

The body of the deceased has been kept in a cold storage at V S Hospital here and the Zambian High Commission in New Delhi has been informed, Bariya said.
