Mangaluru, Sep 22: A 24-year-old destitute was re-united with his family after a month here at White Doves on Wednesday September 21. Tukaram, a resident of Beed in Maharashtra was found at Kadri-Pumpwell on August 7 and was rescued by White Doves led by Corrine Rasquinha.
On September 21, his brother Sakaram arrived to White Doves to take his brother back home. As per his brother, Tukaram was undergoing some psychiatric issues for the past 8 years. He had gone missing four times earlier in Maharashtra and Karnataka and was found later. Tukaram was treated by the doctor and was under medication. He was not consuming the right medicine and used to behave violently with his family members.
Tukaram’s parents were informed to see an occultist for better results. He was taken to an occultist where he was asked to stay for 15 days. Out of fear, in pretext of going to bathroom, Tukaram escaped from the spot and was found by White Doves on August 7.
White Doves got the contact of the family members through Tukaram and managed to reach them. His brother also said that Tukaram was influenced by movies and wanted to be like a hero and fight with everyone. Even during his month-long stay at the White Doves, Tukaram repeatedly spoke about Chitti (a character played by Rajinikanth in Tami movie ‘Robot’) and Telugu hit ‘Pushpa’ and wanted to be like those characters.
This was White Doves’ 420th reunion.
