KOLLAM:The family of road accident victim Murugan, who succumbed to grievous injuries after being turned away by several hospitals here and in Thiruvananthapuram, is planning to call on Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at his office on Wednesday.

As part of efforts to get an audience with the CM, the kin comprising Murugan’s wife Murugammal and children, Gokul and Rahul, along with close relatives on Sunday met CPM district chief K N Balagopal at his office, here.

Commenting on the bereaved family’s visit, Balagopal said, “It was a thanksgiving visit. Our youth wing, the DYFI had not only come forward with financial assistance to Murugan’s kin but they had also provided the ambulance to transport Murugan’s body to his native  Tamil Nadu. The family expressed their heartfelt thanks for the same. They had also expressed their wish to meet the CM. We will indeed see what can be done.”

Meanwhile, it is assumed the family is likely to demand action against the hospitals which had turned away Murugan at the meeting with the Chief Minister. They may also seek compensation from the said hospitals whose medical negligence allegedly resulted in the death of the family’s sole breadwinner.
