Social Welfare Minister Ravela Kishore Babu on Tuesday announced a suitable government job for the mother of a 15-year-old dalit student who allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in Darsi last week.

Mr. Kishore Babu, who is also the Minister in-charge of Prakasam district, promised a fair probe into the death of the boy under mysterious circumstances.

The Darsi Police, based on a complaint filed by the boy’s parents, has already registered a murder case against the School Principal, Physical Science teacher and Physical Education teacher.

Later in the day, the Minister also gave Rs. 1 lakh compensation each to the family members of the four persons who were struck dead by lightning in the district during the recent rains.
