“Richard was jovial and calm according to his course-mates” According to the report, The Student Union visited the venue of the incident but on getting there, they were denied access into the company premises meanwhile the daily routine of the company was going on. After knocking the gate for about 20 minutes, the gate was opened for them. They gained access into the premises and a meeting was held between the company and the Student Union representatives where the issue of neglecting and not visiting the victim parents were addressed. The Company noted that they were also planning to visit the victim’s family later that day.

The safety measures provided by the company for their staffs were addressed and they discussed how the parents of the victim would be helped and they assured the SUG representatives that they would do a lot of things to assist them. After the discussion, four members of the company (A Security Manager, A Legal Representative, and two other staffs) alongside the Student Union representatives visited the family of the deceased.

When they got to the deceased house, the parents and relatives were angry and furious which led to questioning of the representatives of the company but no answer was provided.
