A 22-year-old woman house surgeon attached to Kilpauk Medical College Hospital was found in her hostel room on Friday morning. As she had no injuries and she was not on Covid duty, only a post mortem examination will show the cause of death.
Police said she was a day scholar from Perambur in north Chennai. In view of the lockdown and withdrawal of all transport services, including even suburban train services, the medico moved into the KMC hostel.
She was on Compulsory Rotatory Residential Internship (CRRI) and was posted at the obstetrics and gynaecology department.
