After 9 Days of Intense Search, Body Of Missing Kota Student Found In Chambal Valley


Days after being missing, the body of a 16-year-old IIT-JEE aspirant has been recovered from the Chambal valley in Rajasthan on Tuesday evening. The body was recovered after nine days of intense search operation, the police informed on Monday.

Rachit Sondhiya, a JEE aspirant from Madhya Pradesh, was missing since February 11, NDTV reported. The student was last seen entering the forest area near Garadiya Mahadev temple in a security camera footage.

The student reportedly left his hostel on the pretext of an exam.

According to the police, the teenager’s body was spotted in an isolated and inaccessible spot of the Chambal Valley.

After their son went incommunicado for over a week, Rachit’s parents circulated his posters urging the public to help them find his location. They even reached out to Education Minister Madan Dilawar, requesting his intervention in the matter.

Meanwhile, another student in Kota, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, has been missing since last week. Piyush Kapasia, a JEE aspirant, was staying in a hostel in Kota’s Indra Vihar for the last two years and disappeared on February 13.
