Kerala Government Hands Over Investigation of Veterinary Student’s Death to CBI Amid Controversy

In a significant development amidst mounting controversy, the Kerala government has decided to entrust the investigation into the tragic demise of a Veterinary University student in Wayanad to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The decision comes following fervent appeals from the family of the deceased and amidst allegations leveled against the ruling CPI(M)’s student wing, the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), for their alleged involvement in the incident.

The victim, 20-year-old Sidharthan J S, was discovered hanging inside the bathroom of the college hostel on February 18, sending shockwaves across the state. His death sparked intense scrutiny, with suspicions raised regarding the circumstances leading to his demise.

According to reports, Sidharthan’s father and relatives approached Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, urging him to transfer the case to the CBI for a comprehensive investigation. Despite assurances from the Chief Minister regarding the ongoing police probe and the arrest of all accused individuals, the family persisted in their demand for a CBI inquiry.

Acknowledging the sentiments of the grieving family, Chief Minister Vijayan acceded to their request and announced the decision to hand over the case to the CBI. This decision underscores the government’s commitment to ensuring a transparent and impartial investigation into the matter.

The move comes amidst mounting allegations against certain individuals associated with the college and the SFI, with claims surfacing that Sidharthan was subjected to physical assault prior to his demise. Concerns have been raised regarding the veracity of the initial police investigation, prompting calls for an independent inquiry to ascertain the truth.

The victim’s father has been vocal in his assertions that his son was a victim of foul play, citing the postmortem report which allegedly indicates signs of physical trauma inconsistent with suicide. He has called for stringent action against the perpetrators, emphasizing that mere suspensions are insufficient to address the gravity of the situation.

Reports suggest that Sidharthan, a second-year Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry student, was subjected to brutal physical assault by a group of individuals, purportedly linked to the SFI. The incident has fueled outrage and sparked protests across the state, with opposition parties and student organizations demanding justice for the deceased.

Amidst mounting pressure and public outcry, the Kerala government’s decision to involve the CBI in the investigation reflects a commitment to upholding justice and accountability. The move is aimed at restoring public trust and ensuring that the circumstances surrounding Sidharthan’s tragic demise are thoroughly examined and the guilty parties are brought to justice.

As the investigation unfolds, all eyes remain on the CBI to conduct a thorough and impartial inquiry, shedding light on the events leading to the untimely death of the promising young student. The outcome of the investigation is poised to have far-reaching implications, not only in terms of delivering justice but also in restoring faith in the rule of law and the integrity of the judicial process.
