The protests by the hostel warden and the RD have led to the protests of a tribal girl from Attappady who was left alone in a critical condition. The incident occurred at the Government Victoria College, Palakkad.
The girl who was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia was admitted to Thrissur Medical College at the ICU. However, the students alleged that the teachers returned to the hostel before the parents left the child alone. On Thursday, the hostel warden, a resident teacher and a friend, showed up at the Government Hospital, Palakkad. They were shifted to Thrissur Medical College.
The students say that the teachers had to go back because the relatives of the child would stay away from Attapady. A friend who was with her was brought back with her teachers instead of staying with her child. The teachers went back because they believed the child’s relatives would stay away from Attapady. The teachers who had returned to the hostel had told the boy’s friends that the child had been handed over to the SC promoter and the parents would come. Later, however, the teachers were told that they were wrong.
