Thiruvananthapuram : Ministers Dr. R  Bindu and VN VAsavan will hold talks with management and the students of Amal Jyoti College, where 20-year-old engineering student committed suicide after  school authorities snatched her mobile phone.

The college is presently shuttered for indefinite time and the student protests over Shradha’s death has gained momentum.
The management made an unsuccessful attempt to lull matters, holding discussions with students yesterday. Meanwhile, the principal asked hostelites to vacate their rooms.

The Tragic Death
Shradha, a Thiruvankolam native from Tripunitura, hanged herself inside the hostel room Friday night. At the college lab, the attending professor had  snatched away Shradha’s mobile for using it there.   Apparently the invasion of privacy issue was too much for the young girl to handle. Shradha  was found hanging from the fan the same night and though transported to the hospital,  she succumbed to death.

Her family  accuse school authorities for milsleading  doctors at the hospital that Shradha  fell from dizziness to her head. The family believes if the right cause for admission was disclosed, she might have recieved the right and life-saving treatment.
