The students of All India Institute of Medical Science were in Raipur due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The students were in Raipur after the suspension of regular classes on March 15.

Chhattisgarh High Court Chief Justice PR Ramachandra Menon intervened and sent help. Sixty-one students, along with the nurses, were sent back home to Kerala from Raipur. The students wished to return after the Government issued the lockdown on April 29.

The journey of the stranded students started on Friday. Chhattisgarh Government arranged three special buses, after the direction by Chief Justice Menon.

Justice PR Ramachandra Menon: An Introduction

Parappillil Ramakrishnan Nair Ramachandra Menon was born on June 9 1959. He graduated from the Government law School, Ernakulam and enrolled as an Advocate on January 8 1983.

In furtherance, he started his practice at Ernakulam and was appointed as Addn. Judge of High Court of Kerala on January 5 2009. Later, he became permanent from December 15 2010.

He was appointed as a Chief justice on April 30, 2019, and took oath on May 6, 2019.

Advocate’s Call

Due to the lack of transportation, the students were in Raipur. A few of them then contacted the Supreme Court Advocate Harris Beeran. He sent an email to the Chhattisgarh High Court Chief Justice Menon and asked for help.

Beeran expressed that he had taken note of the stranded students who needed help. He stated that they had registered themselves on the Kerala Govt’s website but were not contacted. They knew that the trains were transporting students to Kerala from Delhi and Punjab. However, the route of these trains does not permit them to pass through Chhattisgarh. And so, they had no other option but to seek help from the Government of Chhattisgarh. The State Govt. will have to take some measures to transport these students back to their state.

Menon, who also hails from Kerala, conveyed the situation through Adv. General Satish Chandra Verma to the State Government.
