A junior resident doctor in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was found dead in his hostel room today, said the hospital authorities.

He was continuing his post-graduation in AIIMS’ medicine department and was staying in junior resident hostel in Masjid Moth area near the hospital, they said.

“We received the information about the incident around 11 a.m. today (Thursday) that a junior resident doctor who was also pursuing his post-graduation in medicine has been found dead,” a senior official said. “To know the exact cause of his death his body has been sent to the forensic department for post-mortem,” he added.
