The body of a student of Jahangirnagar University has been found hanging from the ceiling fan at his room in Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall.
The deceased is Adnan, 25, a student of 41st batch of Accounting and Information System of the university.
Fellow students said they went to meet Adnan at his room (No. 450 of B block) around 10pm on Thursday. But failed to meet him as the doors were locked from inside.

JU Proctor Professor Tapan Kumar Saha said: "The reason behind the death is yet to be known. The authorities will probe into the matter."
