In what appears to be an accident, a girl student of Anna University has been found dead under mysterious circumstances.

The 19-year-old girl apparently fell from the terrace of her hostel building, police said on Monday.

The girl was identified as Shanmuga Preetha, a second year B.Tech Ceramic Technology student at the Guindy College of Engineering under the varsity.

She had gone to the terrace of her hostel around 11 PM yesterday and was found in an injured condition soon after and rushed to hospital where she was declared brought dead.

"Our investigation so far suggests that the death of the student may be an accident", an official of Kotturpuram Police Station said.

He, however, added that the complete facts would emerge after the probe was completed.
