According to media reports, the watchman found 22-year-old Mukesh Bhangel hanging from the ceiling fan in room no. 143 in Hans Raj College around 7:30 pm .
"He was found hanging but his hands were found tied in the front," a senior police official said.
The fact that Bhangel's hands were tied when his body was discovered has led his friends to suspect foul play behind the incident.
However, police said that the cause of death is yet to be determined.
"We are not sure whether it is a case of suicide or murder. It appears to be a case of murder. We are probing the matter," the official said.
Bhangel was a second year BA Hindi Honors student from Agra.
