Kota: A young IIT aspirant committed suicide in Rajasthan's coaching hub Kota on Wednesday. This takes the number of student suicides in Kota in the past three months to 6.
Yogesh Johare, 17, belonged to Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh. According to the police, he immolated himself and then jumped from the third floor of his private hostel building.

The forensic team, though, has not found any suicide note from his room.

The police are investigating the matter to identify if it was due to stress or some other reason that Johare committed suicide. Johare had joined IIT coaching on July 14.
