‘Sealed naturopathy college’s students to be placed in government colleges’

Chennai, Jan 30 (IANS) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa on Saturday said the students of now sealed S.V.S. Medical College of Yoga & Naturopathy and Research Institute in Villupuram will be admitted in government colleges.

In a statement issued here, she said she has ordered the admission of these students in government colleges so that their future is not affected.

She also said the students of homoeopathy college run by the same trust would also be admitted in government-run homeopathy college after getting the necessary permission from the central government.

The bodies of the three girl students – T.Monisha, A. Saranya and V.Priyanka — were taken out of a well in a farm near the S.V.S. Medical College of Yoga in Villupuram district, around 170 km from here, on January 23 evening.

Police said the three girl students ended their lives after the management demanded higher fees even though the college lacked basic facilities.

Nearly four months ago, a few students of the college had allegedly attempted suicide in front of the Villupuram collectorate.

While police registered a case of suicide, the parents of the girls have alleged the daughters were murdered for protesting against the lack of basic facilities in the college.

Police arrested Vasuki, Sukhi Verma and two others top officials of the college management while the Villupuram district administration sealed the college.

On the orders of the Madras High Court, a second post mortem was conducted on the body of Monisha in a government hospital here on a petition filed by her father Tamilarasan.

The first autopsy was conducted in Villupuram despite Tamilarasan refusing consent while demanding the post mortem to be done in a government hospital here.

Jayalalithaa also said the investigation of the case has been transferred to the Crime Branch-Crime Investigation Department (CBCID).
