According to police records, the number is by far the highest since 2015.

Circle officer of Kota Fifth Dharamveer Singh said, “The girl was a resident of Uttar Pradesh and was staying in Kota for the last one and a half years. She earlier used to live in a hostel but had shifted to a rented accommodation in Vigyan Nagar area three months ago.”

The NEET aspirant allegedly consumed a poisonous substance on Monday afternoon, Singh added.

“After consuming the substance, she fell sick and started vomiting and stepped outside. Observing her condition, a few students passing through the area immediately rushed her to a nearby hospital where she died after a few hours of treatment,” the officer added.

According to the initial investigation, the student had not attended several classes at the coaching centre in the last few months, police said. “The reason for her taking the extreme step is yet to be ascertained,” station house officer of Vigyan Nagar Kaushlya Galaur said.
