Com Roshan was son of Sri KV Vasu and Smt Narayani. Com K.V. Roshan became a martyr on 25th November 1994. He was a student leader from Kuthuparamba, a small town in Kannur District of Kerala. At that time of his martyrdom Com K V Roshan was a student in excellent College, Kuthuparamba. Roshan was a man with heroic personality.  He was aware   that there was a chance to lose his life in this struggle but he never bothered about his life. He was an active participant in the Democratic struggle against the commercialization of education in Kerala. In the early years of the 1990's, Congress led UDF Government of Kerala tried to commercialize the famous public education system in Kerala. SFI and other democratic organizations conducted a massive campaign against these policies. Under the leadership of SFI state committee several protest marches were organized during this period. On 25th November 1994, as part of the campaign against the education policy, several students-and youth organizations had decided to conduct a rally in Kuthuparamba when the minister reached there. But the minister ordered the police to fire on the procession. Roshan and his comrades from Excellent College organized a protest march towards that area. In this brutal police firing four comrades were shot dead at the site. Against the brutal act several students and democratic organisations conducted a march in the streets of Kuthuparamba.  But the police again fired, and the student leader Com K V Roshan was shot dead.
