In an unfortunate turn of events, a 20-year-old student in Satna, Madhya Pradesh, allegedly died of a heart attack after being denied to appear for an examination, as he reportedly paid Rs 300 less than the required fees.
The student, identified as Mohanlal, was pursuing BCA from Ramkrishna College and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.
Mohanlal was denied his admit card, since he had paid a sum of Rs 25,700 instead of Rs 26,000, that was the total fee amount.
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 stress.A relative told ANI
Outraged by the incident, aggrieved relatives and neighbours launched a protest and blocked roads demanding action against the college for causing the deceased unnecessary stress and thereby his death.
The agitated protesters have said that they will not relent until the district administration intervenes and takes action against the college authorities.
