The body of Krishnanunni L Pratap, a first year BCom student, was found on the Kochiveli railway track on Friday morning, hours after he went missing following a spat with a classmate’s father.
According to reports, the boy was beaten up by his girl classmate's father on Thursday evening for allegedly giving her a lift. That was the last time anyone saw Krishnanunni as he didn't return home that day. His brother filed a missing person complaint with the local police on Thursday night, before the boy was found dead the next morning.
The Pettah police have registered a case of unnatural death and are investigating the death. Krishannunni's family and friends have alleged foul play in the death, though the police are yet to book any suspects. It is understood that the post-mortem report will take another week to be completed and submitted to the probe team.
An online campaign for Krishnanunni, with the hashtag #JusticeForKrishnanunni, was started by his friends and has now been taken up a few celebrities, including actors Unni Mukundan and Parvathi T.
