Youth ends life in Malappuram after torture by ‘moral police’

In yet another case of goondaism under the guise of moral policing, a youth from Kuttippala in Malappuram district ended his life after he was tortured by a group of people. According to reports, the youth was tied and manhandled moving around the area in a suspicious manner.

Devastated mentally by the torture, Muhammed Sajid is believed to have committed suicide and was found hanging inside his house on Friday night. His family members rushed him to a hospital where he was declared brought-dead.

Ironically, people came to know about the torture after images of he being tied up and beaten on Monday night were put out through social media.

Sajid’s family members said they had lodged a complaint with the police and no action had been taken. They said they would take up the matter with higher authorities and seek justice.
