KOZHIKODE: A 16-year-old boy ran away from his home in Kozhikode to meet Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at his official residence in Thiruvanathapuram. Devanandan, son of Rajeev Tharakkandi, a resident of Koyura ward in Velom panchayat in Kozhikode has embarked on the “adventurous” journey to file a complaint regarding the financial crisis his family is in.

Devanandan’s parents had taken interest money from a private money lending institution and were being harassed as the loan was not repaid. Seeing his family in crisis, student Plus One left for Thiruvananthapuram without telling his parents. Devanandan boarded the Eranad Express from Vadakara on Saturday morning and reached Thiruvananthapuram at 9 p.m.

From Thampanoor he reached Devaswom board junction where Cliff House is by car and asked the security officers to let him in. The officers however took the boy to the museum police station. Sub-Inspector Jiju and his team bought him food at night and informed the boy’s father that the boy was safe in Thiruvananthapuram.

Meanwhile, Devanandan’s parents frantically searched for their son in Velom. “He left the house on Saturday saying he was going to school. However, he did not return after school. Although we found out that he boarded a bus for Vadakara, we had no idea where he left. That’s when we got a call from Thiruvananthapuram police,” Rajeev said.

“It is true that our family has financial problems. We received a notification from the organization after the loan defaulted. The boy got scared when he heard about the loan notification,” Rajeev said. On Sunday morning, Rajeev reached the Museum station. Meanwhile, the police had passed the information on Devanandan’s arrival to the Chief Minister’s office. The chief minister, who learned of the incident, asked to bring Devanandan and his father to his room.

He patiently listened to Devanandan and berated the boy for traveling without telling his family. After dismissing them, the CM ordered officials to investigate his complaint. “Now I understand that I shouldn’t have gone to Thiruvananthapuram alone without informing my family. But I am relieved that the CM has looked into my complaint,” said Devanandan, a Plus-One humanities student at Avala Government Higher Secondary School.
