Dad Praying For Sanjeevan

SEREMBAN: P. Ramakrishnan, who is keeping vigil at the intensive care unit of the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital here with his wife, children and relatives, is praying that his son Sri Sanjeevan will pull through.
The 64-year-old former clerk at a legal firm said Sanjeevan, the third of four siblings, was a filial son and one who would always advise his peers to be law-abiding citizens.

“Although I was told that his condition is stable, I know he is fighting for his life,” he told The Star.

“We hope he will pull through. He is a good son and a good human being who has always been concerned about the well-being of others.”

Ramakrishnan cited as example how his 29-year-old son went out of his way to file a report with Bukit Aman when cops at stations did not act on his complaints over illegal gambling activities in Jelebu.

He said Sanjeevan, who is of Chinese-Indian parentage, had helped many youths involved in gangs turn a new leaf.

Ramakrishnan said his son was, until recently, attached to the marketing department of a five-star hotel in Kuala Lumpur and had plans to further his education in law.

“He left Bahau after his Form 5 and enrolled in a college in Kuala Lumpur.

“He was supposed to have enrolled for a degree programme in a college in Brickfields soon,” said Ramakrishnan, who had to attend to well-wishers who called to ask about Sanjeevan’s condition during the interview.

Ramakrishnan expressed gratitude to Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar on his assurance that police would be thorough in their probe.

“It makes me very happy that the IGP took the trouble to call and to give my family his word,” he said.

Earlier, former IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan also visited the family at the hospital.
