Rampant incidents of harassment and torture are being reported from colleges and educational institutes of Kerala. After Jishnu Pranoy’s suicide at Pampady Engineering College hostel in Thrissur due to alleged torture by the college authorities, students of other colleges have become more vocal about their ordeal.

According to a report in Mathrubhumi News, students of Toms Engineering College, Mattakkara in Kottayam have alleged that the college chairman Tom Joseph regularly visits women’s hostel during night and make the students prepare food for him and tidy his room.


It was alleged that unable to take the strain, a girl student even committed suicide by consuming phenol but she was not taken to the hospital.

Following the report, the University registrar went to the college to collect evidence. The ABVP and SFI carried out separate protests and vandalized the college properties.

The Kerala government had the other day decided to constitute a committee to check conditions in self-financing colleges.
