Thiruvananthapuram: Parents of Jishnu Pranoy, an engineering college student who allegedly committed suicide, were arrested along with others, for trying to stage an indefinite fast in front of DGPs office here.

The family members, who arrived here from Kozhikode, were to stage a protest in front of DGP Loknath Beharas office Wednesday morning demanding the arrest of all those responsible for Jishnus death, police said.

As they were walking up to the DGPs office, police prevented them saying it was a restricted area.

Jishnus uncle alleged that police kicked him and assaulted his sister, Mahija, mother of Jishnu, who lay on the road and protested.

They were forcibly dragged from the site and arrested.

Jishnus mother, who suffered some injuries, has been hospitalised.

Jishnu Pranoy, a first year student of Nehru college of engineering in Thrissur, was founding hanging in the college hostel in January last, after college authorities harassed him after he was allegedly caught copying in an exam.
