Coal India job aspirant dies in exam hall

A 25-year-old student suddenly collapsed and died at outer Delhi’s Aman Vihar, while writing an examination on Sunday.

Police as well as the victim’s parents suspect he died either due to heart attack or heat stroke. Any kind of foul play has been ruled out. Saurav had arrived in Delhi on Saturday to write the exam for recruiting management trainees for Coal India. 

The victim hails from Allahabad, but had been living with his family at Karnal in Haryana where his father works as a deputy general manager with a bank, police said on Tuesday. Delhi was closest to his location, so he chose it as his examination centre.

Police said nothing unusual was reported when he began writing the exam at Tula Ram School in Prem Nagar. He suddenly put down his pen and told the examiner that he was feeling uneasy. Even as he was talking to the teacher, he suddenly collapsed on the floor.

Saurav was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Police suspect he might have died at the examination hall itself. The incident did not cause undue disturbance and other candidates continued writing their papers.

The body was kept in the mortuary and the police waited for the deceased’s parents to arrive before sending the body for post-mortem.

“It was very sudden death. On the request of the victim’s father to waive the post-mortem as they did not suspect any foul play, the body was handed over without autopsy,” said a senior police officer.
