Jishnu’s father says will give back govt’s financial aid if justice denied

Thiruvananthapuram: Amidst continuing protests seeking justice to Jishnu Prannoy, an engineering college student who allegedly committed suicide due to harassment by the college authorities, his father on Sunday said that he would give back the solatium of Rs 10 lakh given by the government following his son’s death.

“I am saddened by the approach of the party I believe in. The Rs 10 lakh given by the government will not bring back my son. I will give it back if I did not get justice. If needed, I can give Rs 20 lakh to the government,” Ashokan told reporters here.

The Rs 10 financial aid to Jishnu’s family was announced by the LDF government in the State and was handed over Minister T P Ramakrishnan in January.

18-year-old Jishnu Prannoy, a computer science student of the private Nehru College of Engineering at Pambady in Thrissur district, was found hanging in the hostel bathroom in January.

There have been protests across the State seeking justice to the youth and punishment to those responsible to the death.

Students have alleged that authorities had harassed Jishnu after he was caught for 'copying' in an examination.
