PATNA: A 29-year-old IIT-Kharagpur graduate girl committed suicide by strangulating herself with a dupatta at her house in Purnendu Nagar locality under Phulwarisharif police station area on Wednesday night.

According to sources, the girl, identified as Suchita Kumari, was an IAS aspirant. She took the UPSC examination thrice but failed to clear the mains. She used to be depressed over it.

Her father, a retired bank manager, Harendra Jha knocked on the door of her room on Thursday but she did not open it. Police said the door was closed from inside and they had to break it open.

Patna SSP Manu Maharaaj said, "She left a suicide note on the study table of her room. Her father told the police that she had dinner with the family before entering her room. Everything seemed to be normal at that time. In the suicide note, she did not blame anybody and mentioned she was keen to become an administrative officer. But frustrated with the result, she committed suicide. Her mobile phone has been taken in police custody and her body was handed over to her family after post mortem."
