A 23-YEAR-OLD chemistry student from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in Bangi was found dead at her hostel parking lot yesterday morning. The hostel’s cleaner discovered the body at 7am.
Police believe the girl fell to her death from her fourth floor room window of the five-storey building.
Kajang district police chief Shakaruddin Che Mood said the girl, from Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan, died from serious internal injuries.
“She shared the room with another student who was not aware what happened as she was asleep,” said Shakaruddin.
Police have taken a statement from her roommate. The body was sent to Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital (HUKM) for post-mortem and later taken to Pengkalan Chepa for burial.
One of her coursemates, who declined to be name, said the girl had been acting strangely lately.
“She never joined any religious classes on the campus since joining the university but a week ago she hanged her mind and joined the class,” she said.
Sources also claimed that the girl was suffering from stress due to her studies.
