Mumbai, May 25

A 23-year-old doctor belonging to a tribal community allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at the hostel of the government-run Nair hospital here, police said.

Payal Salman Tadvi, the deceased, was under depression as three of her senior colleagues allegedly used to harass her with casteist remarks, police said.

She allegedly hanged herself Wednesday night.

Tadvi was the student of a post-graduate course in gynaecology.

The accused doctors also used to defame Payal on WhatsApp groups of students, a police official said.
