After the accident, during a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on December 15, it was decided to give Sreelekshmi a government job according to her qualifications.
Rajan who arrived at the Taluk office, received Sreelekshmi who had come with her two young children to take up the job of a clerk.
After signing the papers, with tears rolling down her cheeks, she said: “I am thankful to all who made this possible.”
Sreelekshmi had done post-graduation in Commerce.
“The state government has kept the promise and she has been given the job,” Rajan said.
Apart from the job, the state government gave her Rs 5 lakh, and another Rs 3 lakh to Pradip’s ailing father for his medical treatment.
