Though Kerala youth Sreejith Parassala’s enduring agitation finally bore fruit, a man from the same district has been protesting for over a year, next to Sreejith demanding justice for his dead daughter. Suresh and his wife Ramya along with their four-year-old daughter have spent 398 days in front the Secretariat.

The couple lost their three-month-old daughter Rudra on July 10, 2016. He alleges that Rudra died because of the medical negligence on part of postgraduate students in SAT hospital, Thiruvananthapuram. She was admitted to the hospital for rashes on her skin and the child received treatment by students and not senior doctors.

Suresh has knocked many doors filing complaints to child rights commision, human rights commision, IG, health minister and chief minister. On November 21, 2016, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan assured that the government would take appropriate action within ten days. “But so far, despite the assurance, no actions have been taken,” Suresh told The Logical Indian. Even though they have tried to meet the CM several times to know the progress of the assurance, they were not allowed to enter his office.

Suresh and his wife have tried various methods for protesting, including lying in corpse position and sinking themselves in kerosene. He told that the police registered a complaint against them for agitating with their elder daughter Durga.

He said to The Logical Indian that Kerala Child Rights Commision is hearing the case and the Human Rights Commision has handed over their complaint to the Kazhakkoottam circle inspector. “After the protest of Sreejith became viral on social media, few celebrities and politicians came here, met us and expressed their solidarity. But we will not call off the protest until the culprits are punished, and justice is served. We request social media activists and other people to stand with us and unite for justice,” said Suresh.
