Jishnu’s mother to observe hunger strike from hospitaltext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: Deceased Jishnu Prannoy’s mother Mahija, who was admitted to Trivandrum Medical College Hospital on Wednesday, said she would be observing hunger strike from the hospital seeking justice for her son.
Mahija and her brother were admitted to the hospital after they suffered minor injuries as the police forcibly removed and arrested them for attempting to stage hunger strike in front of the DGP’s office here.
Jishnu's sister, Avishna, a Class X student, said she was also observing hunger strike at her home at Nadapuram in Kozhikode, seeking justice for her brother and against the police action on her parents.
Jishnu Pranoy, a first year student of the private Nehru College of Engineering in Thrissur, was found hanging in the college hostel in January last following alleged harassment by college authorities.
The State is observing a hartal called by the Congress-led UDF and the BJP to protest the alleged police high-handedness against Jishnu’s family.
