Galav said the student joined a coaching institute in Kota in 2016 to prepare for the JEE entrance exam. He left the coaching centre in 2019 but stayed on in Kota, pursuing online classes.

According to the police, the incident came to light on Thursday night after a tiffin delivery boy went to pick up the box from his room; he found the tiffin box outside the door, untouched.

He then knocked on the door but after not getting any response, alerted the landlord who broke the door open and found the 27-year-old hanging from the fan, said police.

The reason behind the suicide is not known, said Galav. “We have sent the body for autopsy and also have informed his family members”, he added.
