A 19-year-old NEET aspirant allegedly hanged herself in her PG room, the seventh suicide by a coaching student in the city since the beginning of this year, police said on Thursday.

Somya Kurmi committed suicide by hanging from the ceiling fan late Wednesday night, DSP Rajesh Tailor told to news agency, PTI. When Kurmi did not open her room, her friends broke open the door and found her hanging, said police.

A native of Amethi town in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow, Kurmi had been preparing for the competitive NEET exam from a coaching institute for over a year, DSP Tailor said, adding that she had recently shifted to this PG in Mahavir Nagar about a month ago.

A note has been recovered from the student’s room but the police were yet to verify its relevance with the suicide, the DSP said.

During investigation, police found that earlier this week, the woman had some health complications and was admitted to MBS Hospital. She was discharged after a day of treatment.

After conducting a post-mortem, the body was handed over to the parents after they reached Kota on Thursday noon, Jawahar Nagar SHO Kamlesh Kumar Sharma said.

A case has been registered on the basis of the parents’ complaint and further probe is underway, the SHO said while denying that any suicide note was recovered from her room.

This is the seventh case of suicide by a coaching student in Kota since January. In 2023, there were 26 suspected suicide cases of coaching students in Kota.

Two days back, another aspirant from Uttar Pradesh died by suicide in Rajasthan’s Kota. The student identified as Uruj was a resident of the Samdhan village of Uttar Pradesh’s Kannauj, officials said. The 20-year-old was living in Kota for the last year where he was preparing for the medical entrance exam from a coaching institute.

The student’s family called him repeatedly on Tuesday, but he did not respond. After that, they called his friends living in the Jawahar Nagar area who rushed to the building and informed the owner living nearby about the student not taking calls.

A guard went to the student’s room, and after he did not respond, they called the police immediately. The police reached the building and broke open the door. Uruj’s body was found hanging from the fan.

Vigyan Nagar police officials said the student scored average marks in his studies.
