siddharthan-death

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Thursday said that the death of JS Siddharth, a student of the Pookode Veterinary University in Wayanad, is a serious incident. The High Court stated that the student had to face an inhuman attack in front of fellow students and action should be taken against the officers who did not stop the attack. Justice Siyad Rahman mentioned this in the order upholding the Governor's action of suspending Veterinary University Vice Chancellor Dr MR Saseendran following the death of Siddharthan.

Although Saseendran had told the media that he would not legally challenge the Governor's order of suspension, he later yielded to the government's pressure and filed a petition in the High Court questioning the Governor's action. The High Court dismissed this petition after the hearing.

The petition was filed challenging the Governor's jurisdiction to suspend the VC. The court, which refused to grant a stay on the petition, announced the verdict after hearing detailed arguments. The court also clarified that the Governor, who is the Chancellor, has the authority to take action against the VC.
