shahir

KOTTAKKAL: Youth who was assaulted by a mob in the name of his relationship with a girl consumed poison and later died in a hospital here. Shaheer (22), the deceased was assaulted at 9 pm on Sunday near the girl’s residence by a group consisting of her relatives and locals. Shaheer’s relatives have lodged a complaint with the police alleging that he was beaten up with rod after snatching his mobile phone. Those who witnessed the assault informed Shaheer’s family and his mother and brother Shibil reached the spot. Shibil was also assaulted by the group. It is also learnt that the attackers took some naked pictures of Shaheer. On reaching his house, Shaheer consumed poison. He was taken to the hospital in a critical state and was entered into the ventilator. He breathed his last on Tuesday morning.

On Shibil’s complaint the police registered a case against 15 identifiable persons for homicide. The corpse was handed over to the relatives after postmortem at Kozhikode Medical College.

Shahir is a daily wage worker. His family came to a rented house in Puthupparamb from Nilamboor right months back. The girl’s father had lodged a complaint at Kottakal Police Station a month back. The police summoned both families and advised Shahir to end the relationship as the girl is still a minor, which, as per the police, Shahir accepted. But he tried to carry on with the relationship which sparked further problems. In the meanwhile, there were rumours that the girl attempted suicide after her relatives took her to a hospital on suspicion that she consumed paracetamol.

Shahir’s mother has alleged that it was the attackers who forcefully made Shahir consume poison as she saw them giving some sort of powder.
