Kerala: UDF, BJP call for ‘bandh’ for manhandling Jishnu Pranoy’s mother

Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) [India], Apr. 6 : The Congress led-United Democratic Front (UDF) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have called for a 'Bandh' on Thursday to protest against the manhandling and arrest of Jishnu Pranoy's mother.

Pranoy had committed suicide following harassment by his college authorities. On Wednesday, Pranoy's mother was roughed up and arrested here as she was protesting outside the office of Directorate General of Police (DGP) demanding the arrest of those who all are responsible for her son's death.

The DGP soon called for a thorough investigation. Pranoy's body was found hanging in the Nehru College of Engineering at Pambadi in Kerala. Initially, the college authorities said he had committed suicide out of shame as he was caught while cheating during the exams, a claim which was later proved wrong as the authorities could not find any evidence of cheating.
