A 20-year-old student allegedly died of heart attack on Friday in Satna, Madhya Pradesh after he was stopped from giving his exam over failing to pay the fees.
The student, identified as Mohanlal, was immediately rushed to a hospital nearby where he was pronounced dead. Soon after, the boy's parents and neighbours staged protests and blocked roads demanding action against the college.
"For a mere amount of Rs 300, he was not allowed to take the examination. He could not bear the thought of his career being ruined and succumbed to death," a relative of the deceased said.
Mohanlal, who was pursuing BCA from Ramkrishna College, had already deposited Rs 25,700. Since he could not pay Rs 300, what was left of the fee to be deposited, he was not given his admit card.
"Till the time the district administration does not take action against the college, we will not stop protesting," the protesters said.
Earlier this month, another student in Mumbai died of a heart attack the night before his SSC paper. The fateful incident took place on Wednesday night in Mumbai’s central suburb of Dadar. The boy, Rutvik Ghadshi, a student from Shishuvihar School in Dadar.
