Patna: Terming the death of a student during protests against fly-by-night coaching institutes here as unfortunate, senior BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha today asked Nitish Kumar government to take stern action against institutes involved in cheating students.

"It is a very unfortunate incident. The incident seems to be a result of pent up feeling of students who are being badly hoodwinked and cheated by coaching institutes operators, many of which are run by unqualified persons," Sinha, BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Saheb, told PTI.

The senior BJP leader appealed to the NDA government in the state to take stern action against private coaching centres and other private educational institutes involved in duping the students.

"This education mafia has only one aim, that is to make huge money and is playing with the careers of our students," Sinha said.

He suggested strict licensing and registration of these private institutions to eliminate "undeserving" ones.
