Kozhikode: Education minister C. Raveendranath on Thursday visited the house of Jishnu Pranoy, student of Nehru Engineering college, Pampady, who allegedly committed suicide.

The minister assured all help from the government in ensuring justice to the family of Jishnu, who are not satisfied with the probe and the first information report that was based on the information provided by the college.

 

The minister said that educational institutions should shoulder a social responsibility. If they fail to do so, the government and society will have to interfere. “Soon after the tragedy, the university was asked to submit a probe report and they found that there was no evidence of malpractices at the exam hall,” the minister said.

The minister was accompanied by E.K. Vijayan and DYFI leader Muhammed Riyas. The family welcomed the move to probe the death by the Crime Branch.
