Union Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office V Narayanasamy on Tuesday demanded a judicial probe into the recent suicide of a private engineering college student Vinothini.
The Minister called on the parents of the girl, P Ilango and Mahaboob, who sat on a day-long fast in front of the head post office along with family members and people of Sultanpet area.
Narayanasamy said, “Only a comprehensive judicial inquiry will unravel the truth behind the suicide of the girl.” Pointing out that nine students of the same group of institutions had committed suicide, he justified the need for the judicial probe.
Narayanasamy, who sat with the parents for a while to express solidarity with them, said the incident had created fear in the minds of the students and parents and urged the management of the institution to cooperate for the inquiry.
Meanwhile, a local court here granted conditional bail to the four teachers arrested in connection with the incident. The teachers were booked under section 302 of IPC (abetment to suicide).
