A NEET aspirant from Uttar Pradesh committed suicide in Rajasthan’s Kota, officials confirmed on Tuesday. Uruj, 20, was preparing for NEET from a coaching institute in Kota. His body was found hanging from a fan in his room.

Uruj, a resident of Samdhan village in Uttar Pradesh’s Kannauj, had been living in Kota for the past year. His family and friends became concerned when he did not respond to their calls, leading to the discovery of his body by the police.
