MUMBAI

Unable to bear the “stress from studying”, a 24-year-old woman doctor preparing for MD course entrance examination allegedly killed herself on Saturday by jumping from the 12th floor flat of her building in Kolshet area of Thane in Maharashtra, police said.

A police officer said they have found an unverified suicide note, believed to be written by the deceased Shramista Som, in which she mentioned “study pressure” as the cause behind taking the extreme step.

Som’s mother is a well-known skin specialist who practices in Thane. “In the suicide note, believed to have been written by the deceased, she mentioned that she was unable to cope with the studying pressure to prepare for the entrance examination for the MD (Doctor of Medicine) course,” said Kapurbawdi police station inspector Arvind Karpe
