KOTA: A 22-year-old NEET aspirant from Bengaluru, Mohammed Nasid, died on Monday after falling from the 10th floor of a multi-storey building in Rajasthan’s Kota, police said.
The police suspect it to be a case of suicide. Nasid had appeared for the NEET-UG 2023 exam in Jaipur on Sunday and had been preparing for the exam at a coaching institute in Kota for the last year.
He lived with his friends in the building, and his roommates were not present at the time of the incident.

According to Nasid’s roommate, Sujeet, he had seen CCTV footage of Nasid rushing out of a room in an apparent state of anger before jumping over the railing to his death.

The body has been kept at the MBS hospital mortuary, and a postmortem examination will be conducted after Nasid’s parents arrive from Bengaluru.
Sujeet said he had gone for a haircut with Nasid’s other roommates when the incident happened. Nasid told them he had a headache and stayed back in the flat.
Sujeet also said Nasid was probably upset over his performance at the NEET exam, adding this was not his first attempt at the entrance test.
Over 2.25 lakh students were registered with various coaching institutes in Kota in the ongoing academic secession to crack the entrance exams in medical and engineering collages.
It was the sixth incident of suspected suicide by a coaching student in Kota so far this year, while at least 15 coaching students had died by suicide in the city in 2022.
In February, NEET aspirant Ishanshu Bhattacharya (20), a resident of Dhupguri in Jalpaiguri district in West Bengal, had died after accidentally falling from the sixth floor of a hostel building in Jawahar Nagar police station area.
In January, a 17-year-old JEE Mains aspirant from Maharashtra’s Chikhli, a class 12 student, suffered critical injuries after allegedly falling from the balcony of his hostel.
