Jaipur: A 17-year-old coaching student from Bihar's Motihari district has been found hanging from the ceiling fan of his hostel room in Rajasthan's Kota.

Police said they had not found any suicide note and were awaiting Prince Kumar Rajput's postmortem report to ascertain whether he had killed himself. "It is too early to say anything," said Jaiprakash Beniwal, an investigator.

Since 2015, several suicides have been reported from the coaching hub. This year alone, eight student suicides were reported from the area before Rajput's body was recovered.As many as 17 students killed themselves last year. Rajput had arrived in Kota last month to prepare for Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) after clearing Class X. He had enrolled at a private school in Kota.Friends said, an hour before he was found hanging, Rajput had cracked jokes with them.
