According to details, the student was a resident of Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. She was preparing for the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for admission in undergraduate medical courses. 

This was the seventh suicide by a coaching student in the city since January this year. The number of student suicides in Kota stood at 26 in 2023.

Govt released draft guidelines on suicide prevention 

Earlier in October 2023, the Union Ministry of Education had released the draft guidelines for the schools to prevent suicide among students. Setting up wellness teams, identifying students exhibiting warning signs and those at risk of self-harm and supporting them are among the draft guidelines. 

With "Every Child Matters" as the underlying belief in developing the guidelines, the draft details directions to schools for enhancing sensitivity and understanding and providing support in case of reported self-harm.

In addition, the guidelines also emphasised nurturing partnerships between schools, parents and the community, fostering societal support as a critical strategy for preventing suicides and reducing the stigma associated with suicidal behaviour.
