Rahul Gandhi

The Kerala Police on Saturday confirmed that sixteen people have been arrested in connection with the murder of a "mentally unfit" tribal youth named Madhu.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan condemned the incident and said that he has instructed the State Police Chief to take strict action against the culprits.

Madhu was beaten to death by a group of persons for allegedly stealing food articles from some shops in the forest-fringe Agali town.

The post-mortem report has confirmed that A Madhu (27) succumbed to injuries sustained on his head, back and other parts of the body.

Two days after Madhu, a tribal man from Kerala was beaten to death by a mob, the Kerala police have arrested all the 16 accused in the case. When a mobile video of the assault was circulated on social media, the police filed a case against the women. The central government has sought a report from the state over the incident.

The murder of tribal youth Madhu of Attappadi was a hot topic of discussion among the delegates of the CPM state conference here on Friday andSaturday.

The state government made a decision to provide a financial assistance of Rs 10 lakh to the bereaved family. His mother, Mallika, and sister Chandrika told television channels that a group of almost 10-15 persons went to the forest and thrashed him. The Opposition too observed " Hartal" at Mannarcaud taluk, under which Attappadi falls.

"When Madhu asked for water, he was teased and after giving a few drops they dropped the rest of the water on the ground to mock him", she added.

His family has alleged that some forest officials had allowed the local people to go to the area and attack the tribal.

Earlier in the day, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in Kerala's Trivandrum city staged a protest over the death of tribal youth with a symbolic body.
