THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:In the backdrop of the incident at CET Engineering college, Thiruvanathapuram where a student was mowed down by a jeep, the Kerala Human Rights Commission has sought for a fool proof mechanism with legal backing to monitor activities in college hostels.

 The Commission observed that the government should look into whether students who do not have sufficient attendance as well as those who constantly fail in exams are given admissions in college hostels. 

 The explanation given by the director of technical education to the Commission stated that what had happened to Thansi Basheer was an accident. The student was hospitalised without delay. He also submitted that the principal was under tension from the turn of events which led to the delay from their side in reporting the incident to the Police.

 The director also said that the jeep was brought to the college campus violating the law. Following the incident, the union members of the hostel at the college were suspended. The security personnel who was on duty was also suspended.

 The five students who were responsible for the accident were nabbed with the help of CCTV footage. They were dispelled from the hostel.

 Baiju K B who was driving the jeep and caused the accident was terminated from the college. When Thansi was under treatment, the director had also assured to meet all her treatment expenses.

 He also promised the Commission that security will be strengthened at the college gate. Illegal vehicles will be dispelled from the hostel premises. Only first year students will be permitted in the college hostel. 

A boundary will be built around the CET hostel and a faculty will be given the charge of the hostel. The Commission will make several others a party to the complaint lodged by KSU State President V S Joy.
