A week after planning to set up an expert committee to find out the reasons for student suicides in the state, Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has backtracked.

On Tuesday, Chavan said counselling was the best solution to stop the increasing number of student suicides induced by academics-related stress.

Last week, Chavan had said he contemplated forming an expert panel which would recommend ways to minimise stress, if any, that allegedly propels students to kill themselves.

Maharashtra has reported 15 student suicides in the last 10 days.
