This Incident Happened On Thursday and Tribal Person Identified as Madhu who hails from Kaduka Manna region in Attappady, was caught by a group of people, tied up for several hours and reportedly beaten with sticks. The charge was that Madhu would steal rice and other food items from shops in the area. The man was later handed over to the police at Mukkali junction but died on his way to the hospital. An official at the Agali police station said there was a theft complaint against the man in 2016 and that he appeared to be mentally unsound.

The cops have registered a case and began the search for the miscreants.

“A case under section 174 CrPC against unknown persons has been filed. Arrests have not been made yet. The post-mortem of the body will be conducted at the Thrissur Medical College and the report will reveal more about his injuries,” the news outlet quoted the official as saying.

Meanwhile, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has strongly condemned the murder of the tribal youth and assured the sternest action against the culprits. “I’ve asked the police chief to take all steps to book the culprits. The culprits will not be asked to get away. This murder is shocking and is not befitting a civilized society,” the CM said.

AK Balan, Minister for Welfare of SCs, STs and Backward Classes, has condemned the incident. He said that the accused men will be severely punished as nobody has the right to beat to death another person or take the law into their hands.

This incident indeed comes as a shock because despite being the state with the highest literacy rate, people in Kerala display a regressive mindset and even choose to take pictures and selfies of such incidents rather than helping the victims.
