New Delhi: An Indian Administrative Services (IAS) aspirant committed suicide by hanging himself in Ber Sarai area here, after having failed the exam.

The victim, identified as Samrat Chauhan, was allegedly depressed after having failed the examination and decided to hang himself, as per his suicide note.
