Two students were from Bihar
Two of the students who committed suicide, Ankush and Ujjwal, were residents of Bihar. It is said that all three were friends and lived in adjacent rooms in the same hostel.

Third student was from Madhya Pradesh

Many cases have come before
In 2016, a student called for the closure of all coaching centers before jumping to her death despite clearing the IIT-JEE Main exam. In 2019, the Rajasthan government had constituted a state-level committee to reduce tensions among those studying in such institutions.
