Tragic Incident: NEET Aspirant Found Dead in Kota Hostel Room

In a heart-wrenching incident, an 18-year-old medical aspirant, identified as Mehul Vaishnav, allegedly died by suicide in his hostel room in Kota. The teenager, who was diligently preparing for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), was found hanging from a ceiling fan on Tuesday morning. The unfortunate incident occurred during the intervening nights of Monday and Tuesday, with no suicide note discovered at the scene, according to the police.

Mehul Vaishnav, hailing from Udaipur’s Salumbar district, had been pursuing NEET preparations at a coaching institute in Kota for the past two months. Residing in a hostel situated in the Vigyan Nagar area, Vaishnav was alone in his room that fateful night as his roommate was away. Concerned by his absence, the hostel residents alerted the caretaker, who took the distressing decision to break open the door, only to discover the aspiring student’s lifeless body.

The authorities promptly shifted the body to the mortuary at MBS Hospital, awaiting the arrival of Vaishnav’s grieving family members for the post-mortem procedure. This unfortunate incident marks the 13th suspected suicide case among coaching students in Kota this year, following a distressing trend that saw 15 similar cases registered in 2022.

The tragic death of Mehul Vaishnav sheds light on the immense pressure and mental strain faced by NEET aspirants in Kota, known as an educational hub for medical entrance exam preparations. The absence of a suicide note leaves behind unanswered questions, as the community mourns the loss of yet another young life with immense potential.

Authorities and educational institutions are called upon to address the mental health concerns faced by students, providing support systems and counseling services to alleviate the burden placed on these aspiring medical professionals. It is a collective responsibility to prioritize mental well-being and create an environment where students feel nurtured and supported during their pursuit of academic success.
