Bihar student commits suicide in Kota

A student from Bihar committed suicide in Kota yesterday. What made the case suspicious is that the student had come to Kota for coaching, but reportedly never went to any coaching institute in the city.

Police informed that Abhishek Kumar Yadav (17) of the Madhubhani region of Bihar was found hanging in his room in a paying guest accommodation in Mahaveer Nagar First area of the city yesterday. The owner of the PG accommodation informed police about the incident after which they arrived and took the dead body in their possession.

Awadhesh Kumar, Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) said that the student had filled the admission form of a coaching institute in the past but had not taken admission. “The student was not going to any coaching institute as per the prima facie information,” he said. He had arrived in Kota for coaching for IIT-JEE. No suicide note has been recovered from the room of the student so the reasons behind the suicide are not clear. The ASI said that it is not clear what the student was doing in Kota.

The postmortem will be conducted upon the arrival of the parents of the deceased student. Kumar said that the police is investigating the case.
