PEERMEDU: A youth was stabbed to death in front of his father after a clash broke out between neighbours over a land dispute in Peermedu on Saturday. The deceased has been identified as Peermedu native Jinu (22), son of Thomas. Jinu's brother Sibichan(25), who got seriously injured in the fight, is undergoing treatment at the Kottayam Medical College Hospital. Three youths, identified as Maneesh (40), Aneesh (32) and Abin (28), later surrendered at the Vandiperiyar police station in connection with the incident.

The incident took place on Saturday midnight after the accused blocked Sibichan on the road while he was returning home. Following this, a brawl broke out when Jinu and his father intervened. Subsequently, the accused stabbed Jinu and Sibichan with knives and fled the area. Though the two brothers were rushed to the hospital, Jinu soon succumbed to his injuries. His body will be handed over to the relatives on Monday after post mortem.
