Student died of hammer hit:  Probe at a snail’s pace

Kottayam: The probe into the incident of the student dying after having been hit by a hammer during the state junior athletic meet has not yet picked up steam.  

Nothing was done by way of follow up probe, although the police claimed to have taken a case against the organizers.

It seems there are alleged behind the scenes moves to protect the organizers.

The family of Afeel has also come out with the same allegation.  Afeel’s father Johnson alleged attempts to destroy evidence.

He would lodge a complaint with Chief Minister and the Opposition leader to spur the investigation. In case of not getting justice from the police, the family would move the court, he said.

The family’s major accusation is that call list on Afeel’s phone was deleted. The call list for October 3, and 4 was deleted for, what the family alleged, protecting the organizers.

Afeel signed up to be a volunteer at the sports meet after he had been called by organizers.  

However, there are attempts following the mishap to make it look like Afeel was not a volunteer.

 The family raised the misgiving that it was part of this move the call list was deleted.

The total onus of the accident rests on the organizers, but they are washing their hands of it. This pains a lot, said Johnson.

The probe is on in the incident and the issue of deletion of call list would be investigated, said the police.   The phone has been handed over to cyber cell for probe.

After obtaining the report, steps would be initiated, said Pala CI VA Suresh.

Afeel, a plus one student of Pala Saint Thomas Higher Secondary school, was hit by a hammer during the state junior athletic meet held on October 4, and was succumbed to injuries on November 21.
