Shankar Murdered for Marrying Caste Hindu: Castevirus004TN2016


A day after a Dalit man was killed on a busy street in Udumalaipettai town of Tamil Nadu’s Tirupur district, the father-in-law of the victim surrendered before a court in Dindigul on Monday and claimed responsibility for the murder.


Six teams have been formed to look for the assailants. Udumalaipttai’s DSP Vivekanandan said although there were several witnesses, not many have been helpful in giving a firsthand account of the assailants. “We are still looking for more witnesses. We will make arrests soon,” he said.

On Monday, the police said they are looking for a five-member gang, against the three bikers who were initially thought to have carried out the daylight fatal attack on V Shankar, 22, and left his wife Kausalya, 19, severely injured. The police claimed to have intensified the search operations based on witness accounts and CCTV footage of the incident, which took place around 3 pm near Udumalaipettai bus stand.

Kausalya’s maternal uncle and his son, an engineering student, were taken into custody on Sunday night and are being interrogated, the police said.

Meanwhile, PTI reports that Kausalya, who is hospitalised in Coimbatore, has blamed her father for the murderous attack on Shankar and said she will be in a position to identify the culprits.
