An 18-year-old girl preparing for the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) and a school student hanged themselves in separate incidents in Kota owing to study-related stress, police said.

Anjali Anand of Moradabad was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her hostel room in Rajeev Gandhi Nagar on Sunday morning.

The hostel manager informed of the suicide to Jawahar Nagar police, who recovered the body and sent it for postmortem.

Arvind Megh, sub-inspector, Jawahar Nagar police station, said Anjali had completed her senior secondary examination in 2014 and came to Kota for AIPMT coaching last year.

She had extended her coaching term for another year from a city-based institute after failing to get selected in her first attempt last year, according to the police officer.

“No suicide note has been recovered from the possession of the deceased student. But she used to write her diary daily in which she had written in September that she was not performing well in her tests at the coaching institute and so, does not want to live anymore,” Megh said.

In a se parate incident, Harshdeep, a 16-year-old school student, hanged herself in her house in Jaishree Vihar in Thegra area late night on Saturday.

Circle inspector of Udhyog Nagar police station, Ramkalyan Meena said the girl took her life when her parents and other family members were in other rooms of the house.

Harshdeep, a student of Class 10, had not been going to school for the last few days. Ramkalyan said the deceased has left a suicide note for the family in which she has written that she cannot continue her studies and is leaving her family.
