Kota, known for its intense coaching centers, was left in shock when the lifeless body of 17-year-old Manjot Chabra, a diligent medical entrance examination NEET aspirant from Uttar Pradesh's Rampur, was discovered in his hostel room. The grisly scene revealed his face wrapped in a plastic bag and hands tied, leaving investigators perplexed.

Initially labeled as a possible suicide, the case took a dramatic turn when the grieving father firmly alleged foul play in his son's demise. Acting promptly on the complaint, the Rajasthan Police registered an FIR at the Vigyan Nagar police station, transforming the investigation into a full-fledged murder case. The accused list includes six individuals, among them, a fellow classmate of the deceased and the hostel owner, K S Shah, as reported by PTI.

Adding complexity to the puzzle, the suspect classmate, who hails from the same region in Uttar Pradesh, is a minor and lived adjacent to Manjot's hostel room.

Despite the serious allegations, the investigating officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police Dharmveer Singh, disclosed that tangible evidence of murder has not emerged yet. Nevertheless, law enforcement continues to pursue leads and conduct a meticulous probe into the tragedy that has sent shockwaves through the community.

Amidst heartrending grief, the parents of Manjot Chabra demanded a postmortem be conducted by a five-member medical board before accepting their son's body. Only after the case was officially classified as murder did they meet with City Superintendent of Police Sharad Choudhary to seek answers and justice for their beloved son's untimely demise.
