A teenaged medical aspirant from Bihar was killed and another received severe injuries when a clash between two groups of students of coaching institutes in Kota turned violent on Thursday night, police said.

Both groups reportedly comprised students from Bihar, leading to local BJP MLA Bhawani Singh Rajawat blaming youths from Bihar for being responsible for “80 per cent” of crime in Kota. Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi Prasad Yadav meanwhile sent a letter to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje seeking quick action in the case.

The deceased, Samarthya, alias Satya Prakash, 19, came from Gonama village in Bihar’s Nawada district.

Samarthya died on the spot; Sandeep was hospitalised and is now stated to be out of danger.

Confirming that it was a “clash among students, all of whom come from Bihar”, Superintendent of Police Sawai Singh Godara said, “We have taken four of the 10 (students) named into custody and are questioning them.”
Samarthya’s father Surendra Singh, a postmaster, left for Kota early Friday morning.
