Another student preparing for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in Rajasthan's Kota district allegedly died by suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan in her hostel room, police said on Thursday. This was the 26th case of suicide by a coaching student here this year.

Nisha Ahir (22), a resident of Uttar Pradesh, allegedly died by suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan in her hostel room in Mahavir Nagar on Wednesday night, said Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Kundan Kumar of the Jawahar Nagar police station.

The ASI said that no suicide note was found in the girl's room. The real reason will be known after the deceased's family members reach here and the post-mortem report comes, he added.

District Collector Mahavir Prasad Meena said that the administration has held a meeting with the coaching institutes and hostel operators instructing them to take steps to prevent recurrence of such incidents.
