Jishnu’s mother Mahija was dragged on the streets in Thiruvananthapuram while she was protesting the lack of action on the part of the police in investigating the death of her son. Jishnu was beaten to death by the management officials of Nehuru College. Painful and cruel scenes spark social media outrage.
The CPM government of Pinarayi Vijayan displayed its cruel fangs when the police used high-handed methods to arrest and drag Jishnu Pranoy’s mother Mahija on the streets of Thiruvananthapuram. Mahija was protesting against police inaction in the investigating the death of her son at the hands of the management officials of moneyed and well-connected Nehuru College.
The CPM, which shed tears and sparked nationwide protest at the death of Hyderabad University’s Rohit Vemula, shamelessly allowed its government in Kerala to use strong-arm tactics in arresting and jailing a grieving mother.
The Home Department is handled by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan himself. Either he has to go or take stern action against those involved in today shameless police action on a hapless woman.
CPM’s General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, who is more concerned about beef consumption, has no time or words to console a grieving mother while he shed copious tears on Rohit Vemula’s suicide.

Women Police brutally dragged Jishnu’s mother Mahija on the road in broad daylight.
“I am a grieving mother who has been fighting for the last three months. I have the right to be here, my son should get justice,” Mahija said.
All the 16 protesters were first taken to AR camp and then moved to Poojappura police station. There after DGP met them in the station, and later admitted to hospital.
