A Tripura U-19 women's cricket team player, Ayanti Reang, has been found dead at her residence.
The 16-year-old was found hanging from the fan of her room on Tuesday night.
The youngest of four siblings, Ayanti was a member of Tripura's Under-19 team for the last one year and also played a T20 tournament for the state in U-23 age group.
Condoling her death, Tripura Cricket Association secretary Timir Chanda said the state has lost an upcoming talent.
"She has been part of the state team from Under-16 days. She was quite promising. The news has left us in deep shock," Chanda said.
Asked whether she faced any mental health issues, Chanda said: "She was doing perfectly fine till last season and then everything was closed because of the lockdown. We conducted some online classes but we were not aware about her family problems.
