Thrissur: Parents of two students of Nehru College of Engineering and Research Centre in Pampady filed a complaint with Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday alleging that the Managing Trustee of Nehru Group of Institutions P Krishnadas, who is the first accused in the Jishnu Murder case, had threatened to kill their children.
In the complaint they had mentioned a meeting with Krishnadas on February 8 at the college in which he allegedly told the parents of Athul Jose and Nikhil Antony that if both the students, who were at the forefront of the protest in the college over Jishnu’s alleged suicide, did not withdraw from it, the parents would have to see them either in a hospital or in a mortuary. The trustee also allegedly said that he had the money and power to make it happen.
Krishanadas had earlier denied such an allegation and said that he was not in the college on that day and would initiate legal action against Athul who first came out with such an allegation. But later, news channels had aired visuals claiming that he was at the college on the same day.
