A 17-year-old girl committed suicide by jumping off a five-storey building in Kota on Thursday, a day after she cracked IIT-JEE, scoring 44 marks above the cut-off of 100.
The girl, identified as Kriti Tripathi, was rushed to a local hospital, but was declared brought dead.

According to the police, Kriti left behind a five-page suicide note in which she mentioned that she did not want to pursue engineering and wished to pursue bachelors of science instead.

Kriti, a resident of Ghaziabad, had moved to Kota two years ago to prepare for IIT entrance exam and one of her parents used to stay with her.

As many as 56 students have committed suicide in Kota in the last five years owing to fear of failure.


While several coaching institutes have launched a round-the-clock helpline to offer counselling, the district administration has also asked all coaching institutes to admit students after proper screening process.
