A 21-year-old student studying for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) in Chhattisgarh’s Bhilai city committed suicide by hanging himself in his rented room a day before the exam, police said on Sunday.
Police assume that the student committed suicide as a result of stress from the exam.
According to an officer, the event occurred on Saturday at the victim’s leased residence in the Pragati Nagar section of Newai police station limits.
Prabhat Kumar Singh, a Bemetara district native, had been studying for the NEET at a local coaching institute since September of last year.
While no suicide note was found in Singh’s room, it appears that he may have taken the ultimate measure owing to exam stress, according to the official.
