Police said that Mrinalini had used her father's licensed gun.

Initial investigations suggest that the second year student of Madhubala College of Communication and Electronic Media was facing difficulties in her studies, which could have led her to commit suicide.

"We have not found any suicide note. We are trying to speak to her parents to ascertain the reason behind this extreme step," said Anil Shukla, deputy commissioner of Delhi Police.

He added that Mrinalini stayed with her mother, who had Saturday gone to Chandigarh.
