A 34-year-old junior doctor from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was found dead under mysterious circumstances in his hostel room on the hospital premises. Police said according to initial probe, there does not seem to be any foul play and that the death might be due to drug overdose.

Police said Kumar Kunal was a junior doctor in the Medicine department and hailed from Bihar. Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Prem Nath said his room was bolted from inside. He added that Kumar had not been reporting to work for past three days.

“Some injections and drugs were recovered from his room. It seems he was a drug addict. But we are investigating the case from all angles,” said Nath. The body has been sent for a postmortem examination and his family has been informed about the incident, said police.
