HARTFORD, Conn. (Diya TV) — The parents of a University of Connecticut student who died after being run over by a campus fire department vehicle have asked a judge to prohibit public release of a surveillance video of the accident.

Abraham and Shinymol Chemmarappally requested a protective order last week as part of a lawsuit against the state and the driver of the fire department vehicle. Their motion came in direct response to public records requests to obtain copies of the video from the university from local media outlets, requests which reportedly still remain pending.

A Hartford Superior Court judge has scheduled a hearing for next Monday.

“Any disclosure of this video would be highly offensive, distressing and cause severe emotional anguish to the plaintiffs and to the close family members,” the couple’s lawyer, Michael Walsh, wrote in the request. “The plaintiffs further submit that such disclosure may also impair the abilities of the parties to impanel a fair and impartial jury at the time of trial.”

The couple’s daughter, Jeffny Pally, fell asleep against a garage door of the university’s Public Safety Complex at about 1 a.m. on Oct. 16 after drinking alcohol while attending an off-campus party, according to police. A fire department vehicle ran over her while responding to what turned out to be a false alarm. The driver of the vehicle, firefighter Dana Barrow Jr., told police he thought he ran over a piece of equipment.

The 19-year-old sophomore’s body wasn’t discovered until roughly 30 minutes after the accident took place, she died from injuries to her head and torso, the medical examiner’s office said. The death was ruled an accident, and Barrow faced no charges in the matter.

The lawsuit by Pally’s parents accuses the state and Barrow of negligence and carelessness. It also alleges Barrow drove the SUV recklessly.

Six University of Connecticut students have been charged with alcohol-related offenses connected to Pally’s death. The students hosted the off-campus party that Pally attended at a fraternity-related house during homecoming weekend. Two other students have been charged in connection with the false alarm that Barrow was responding to when he ran over Pally.
