Wednesday witnessed two heart-rending suicide cases, the first one involving a teenager who could not stay put with her performance in the IIT Mains. In the second case a young woman scientist allegedly committed suicide in Delhi.

The first case: A 17-year-old IIT aspirant, who was studying in a coaching institute, Kota, Rajasthan, allegedly jumped to her death today from the fifth floor of the building she was staying in as she was disappointed with her scores in the IIT-JEE Mains.

This is the fifth case of student suicide in Kota this year, taking the total number of student suicide in the city to more than 30 in last one year alone.

The JEE Mains results were announced yesterday. The student had been taking coaching for the IIT-JEE entrance exam for the last two years in Kota, police said.

The second case: A 30-year-old woman scientist, employee of the Indian Agricultural Research Institute allegedly committed suicide at her residence in Pusa complex of southwest Delhi, police said.

Puja Rai, a native of UP, married a Gurgaon-based businessman November last. While her husband lives in Gurgaon she occasionally lived at a government flat allotted to her close to her workplace inside the Pusa complex, a senior official said.

The incident came to light around 9 AM today when her relatives came to her flat and found her hanging from a ceiling fan. They informed the police and a team was rushed there immediately.

The police recovered a suicide note from the spot and later an inquest was initiated into the matter, the official said.

In the suicide note she has not clearly mentioned why she took the extreme step and did not held anyone responsible for the same, the police said.
