Vijayawada: A 26-year-old doctor ended her life after a `love failure' at Meera Saheb Street in Vijayawada city of Andhra Pradesh.

Identified as N Devi Priyanka, she was pursuing post-graduation in pulmonology at Katuri Medical College in Guntur.

Police said that the incident happened at around 3 am on Friday.

Though the police are yet to ascertain the exact causes, they suspect that her love failure could have forced her to take the extreme step.

Police said a preliminary investigation has revealed that Priyanka was in a relationship with a classmate identified as Naveen.

Since her parents were looking for alliances to get her married, she apparently was disappointed and committed suicide. Priyanka has mentioned that Naveen was responsible for the extreme step.

Interestingly, Priyanka's friends and parents pleaded ignorance about her relationship with Naveen. Police seized the mobile phone and laptop of Priyanka to find any clues.

Police have registered a case under Section 174 of CrPC (suspicious death). The investigation is on to identify the responsible persons for the suicide of the medical student.
