Jishnu’s family ends fast after CM assures action
(Thiruvananthapuram, Apr, 09,2017):Kerala engineering college student Jishnu Pranoy’s family members who have been on indefinite fast for the last many days demanding justice for Jishnu, and action against police over their ‘high handedness’, have ended their protest today after being assured of action by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

Pinarayi Vijayan said in Thrissur that his government and police would act against all those guilty of abetting the suicide of Jishnu.

"The government will take all steps to get justice for Jishnu's family," Pinarayi Vijayan said in Thrissur district.

There are a total of five accused in the case.

Earlier in the day, N K Sakthivel, VicePrincipal of the college, one of the absconding accused, was arrested from Coimbatore.

Nehru Group of Institutions Chairman P Krishnadas and a college official Sajith, son of former Congress minister, K P Vishwanathan, were arrested earlier.

Two more accused, Prof C P Praveen and Deepan, are still absconding.

The CPI(M)led LDF government has also announced a Rs one lakh reward to those giving information about the two absconding.

Investigation into the case picked up after Jishnu's family members had undertaken an indefinite fast after being prevented by police from staging a protest in front of the DGP's office in Thiruvananthapuram.

The Kerala police also arrested Jishun’s mother and her relatives after they alleged delay in booking all the accused in connection with the death.

The government had come under flak from various quarters, including LDF partner CPI, for the "high handed" police action against the mother of Jishnu and others.

Jishnu, a first year student of the Nehru College of Engineering in Thrissur, was found hanging in the college hostel in January following alleged harassments by college authorities.
