Kerala youth assaults 6-yr-old migrant kid for leaning on his car

Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 4 (IANS): A 20-year-old youth in Thalassery in Kerala's Kannur district was on Friday arrested for kicking a six-year-old child for leaning on his car parked at a no parking area.

A video of the incident went viral on social media following which the police action came.

The youth, identified as Mohammed Shehzad, hails from a rich family in Kannur district. The child is the son of a Rajasthani couple, who sell balloons and have recently come to the district as the temple festival season begins.

The police came under fire after failing to take Shehzad into custody, who had come to the local police station Thursday night.

A young lawyer, who was an eyewitness to the incident which happened on Thursday, first raised an alarm over the incident and informed the police.

Soon the police arrived at the location but by then Shehzad had left the place and the child was taken to the local hospital, where he is now under treatment.

Meanwhile, the police, after examining the CCTV visuals, traced the car and asked Shehzad to come to the police station. Shehzad did come to the station but by 11 p.m. he was allowed to leave while the car was kept at the police station.

By Friday morning with the vernacular TV channels airing this incident, the police took Shehzad into custody.

The Thalassery Additional SP Nithin told the media that the arrest of Shehzad will be soon recorded and the charges include IPC 308 (which is a non-bailable offence) invoked against him.

Despite several questions on why the accused was allowed to leave on Thursday night and on Friday non-bailable charges were being put, Nithin continued to say that there was no lapse on the part of the police.

State Education Minister V. Sivankutty wrote in his Facebook that this was a thing that should not have happened and strict action should be taken.

    Due to appeasement politics of Secular parties, such things are going to increase day by day. Thanks to secular parties & secular Politicians of the country. If at all the incident has happened the other way, surely 6 year old boy would have been jailed without bail.

    Very disgusting, being a mother I can understand. Just imagine our innocent child being kicked by someone rich. The kid was only leaning, that too it was an ordinary car, not a Rolce Royce or something. Joining hands with such elements to fight a common enemy, we will end up paying a very hefty price. We cannot feed and support snakes and expect it to bite only our enemies. I hate but Sorry to admit, smuggling in the the undies, sexually molesting minors , irrespective of girls , boys or even animals, abusing children. All these make the likes of Bajrang Dal, RSS look like Saints!

    Vote bank politics would play a huge role here. The Govt is supported by Muslim League , who will threaten to withdraw support if Shezad is not released. Some fake apology here and there and its forgotten. In the court, It will proved that Shezad was practicing football and the child came in between!

    Very appropriate comments. He may even flee to Mangalore where he will go underground supported by like minded people here on the basis of religion or party affiliation. He would be termed as 'Mugda Alpasankyatharu'.

    One cannot fathom this fact, I pity the child . But then they are a menace around the world. They cannot co exist among themselves ! forget others. In 1947 a new separate country was given based on religion . See today where they are . Its a terror haven. Notoriously known around the world for killing themselves. Every country where they are majority in population is a disaster. If at all they migrate, they are a night mare to the host countries. Still its not known why all such acts have a 'common factor' as they call it?

    How many legs will we chop Chris???... This is human being in reality... If legs are chopped for such offences then there will be majority handicapped in our country... Looking down on weak and helpless is our first instinct that needs to be internally eradicated and not by external punishment...
