Medical aspirant commits suicide in Kota

Press Trust of India  |  Kota 

A 17-year-old girl who was taking coaching at an institute in Kota for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) to get a medical seat allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her room in RK Puram area today.

The medical aspirant who hailed from Raiwadi area in was taking coaching at a coaching institute in Kota for about an year.



She was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her room in the morning around 7.30 AM, police said, adding she was living with her mother and brother at the rented accommodation.

Her mother had gone out to drop her brother at school at the time of incident, said Sub Inspector Kamal Singh.

The deceased girl identified as Mahima Yadav was a class XI student and was reportedly depressed over low scoring in routine tests in the institute.

"No suicide note was recovered from the room. However, the girl was reportedly depressed over her low score in the routine tests," Singh said.

The body was sent for the postmortem and further investigation into the matter is underway.

Despite constant efforts by district administration and coaching institute managements to check suicide by the students, at least 15 have taken the extreme step since January this year.

This incident has taken the toll to 16 so far.

The district administration has also asked the coaching institutes to conduct screening tests for the students seeking admissions in the institutes and to give their parents an assessment of their ward's chances of cracking the entrance exams of prestigious IIT and medical colleges.

Around 1.75 lakh students from across the country arrive at Kota every year for admission in coaching institutes to prepare for entrance exams to these colleges.
