New Delhi [India], Sept 20 (ANI): A 19-year-old student allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her home in Tilak Nagar, police said on Friday.

The deceased has been identified as Muskan who was studying at Amity YWCA.

As per the police, "The incident took place on Thursday. The parents of the girl brought her to Daya Dutt Vashist Hospital where the doctor declared her dead."
