In her four-page long suicide note, the contents of which have been released by police, the girl expressed her desire to join NASA as a scientist and her lack of interest in engineering.
A Ghaziabad resident, Kirti had been staying with her parents for over two years in Kota and taking coaching for IIT-JEE at an institute in the city.
The suicide note says she was not able to put up with the depression and stress that she had been experiencing while taking coaching, said Harish Bharti, Station House Officer, Jawharnagar police station.
In her note, Kirti said the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry should shut down the coaching institutes, complaining that studies in these centres subjected the students to unbearable stress and depression.
