KOCHI: In a shocking incident, a tarring worker attacked three car passengers by pouring boiling tar on them for questioning the tarring works done by blocking the road. The shocking incident took place at Chilavannoor in Ernakulam district. According to witnesses, Thrippunithura native Krishnappan, a tarring worker, poured boiling tar at the brothers Vinod and Jijo, who came by car, and another person named Vinu, who rushed to the spot after witnessing the incident.
