Thiruvananthapuram: The first accused in the case related to the death of Thasni Basheer, the engineering student who succumbed to injuries after being run over by a jeep during Onam celebrations inside the campus of College of Engineering, Trivandrum (CET), has surrendered.
Baiju K Balakrishnan, a fourth year mechanical student hailing from Kannur, reached the Thiruvananthapuram Medical College police station at around 2 am Sunday and surrendered.
Baiju had been absconding ever since the police filed a case against him in connection with the incident.
He agreed to surrender after the investigation team held talks with his relatives.
It was Baiju who drove the jeep that hit Thasni. He will be taken to the CET Sunday as part of the investigation.
