The Educational Consultancy Association of Nepal (ECAN) has expressed its serious concern over police raids at different educational consultancies in the Capital on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Organizing a press meet here today, the ECAN said that it would help the Nepal Police in booking proprietors of those consultancies operating illegally. But it said that the overall business should not be hampered in the name of police raid.
The ECAN also urged media houses not to slander the general business on the basis of some institutions which were operating without registration and cheating students.
