A 17-year-old engineering aspirant, and a student of the Resonance Coaching Institute, committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan in his rented room in Mahaveer Nagar area, Kota. It is the tenth suicide by an engineering aspirant reported from the coaching capital this year.
Nirmal Yogi, a student of Class 12 and a resident of Sawai Madhopur district, had enrolled himself for JEE coaching in Kota last year. He was found hanging from the fan using a towel, the police said. Since no suicide note was found, the police are uncertain about the cause of this extreme step.
“The student had gone home and returned only five days ago. No suicide note was found in the room. His parents are shocked at the untimely death of their son. They are unaware of the reason that forced him to take this drastic step,” said Sawai Singh Godara, Superintendent of Police.
Last month, another student had ended her life in Kota. She was unhappy with her score in IIT-JEE Mains.
