Her two roommates told the police that the Noida resident had been tense for the past two days and had not gone to college today because of illness.
They said that when they returned to the room for lunch they found her hanging and informed the college administration, the SSP said. He added that parents of the girl have arrived and investigations are on.
No suicide note was found and the reason which drove her to allegedly take the extreme step was not immediately known, he said.
