After the increasing incidents of Kota suicides, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has not only expressed concern over the increasing incidents of suicides of coaching students in Kota, but he has also taken ‘virtual classes’ of Kota’s coaching institute operators while living in Jaipur, but Despite this, the operators of the coaching institutes in Kota are running the activities of the coaching institutes as per their wish, disregarding all the government papers and guidelines.
Recognizing stress as a major reason for suicide among coaching students in Kota, Kota District Magistrate Om Prakash Bunkar had recently issued a guideline asking coaching institutes to observe ‘Sunday as fun-day’. Celebrated and no coaching activity or test etc. should be organized on this day.
But in spite of this today being a Sunday, the test was conducted in this coaching institute. After giving the test, the coaching student reached the sixth floor of his coaching institute and jumped from there. He died immediately after falling down. On receiving the information, Vigyan Nagar police station reached the spot and recovered the body and kept it in the mortuary of the hospital. The police is investigating the matter
