Hindu boy brutally murdered, but Karnataka police calls it ‘normal death’

In a chilling case of human barbarism, the body of a poor 21 years old boy was recovered from a lake in Honnavar town of Karnataka. It was reported that body which was recovered on Friday contained signs of extreme torture like being burnt, mutilated and castrated.

As per media reports, the boy named Paresh Mesta was most likely trying to escape stone pelting that erupted after a fight between a motorbike and an auto rickshaw driver turned into communal violence. Paresh went missing on Wednesday night.

After his body was recovered, police claimed that the boy had accidentally drowned in the lake while escaping the mob. This has been rubbished by his family members who stated that he was an expert swimmer and belonged to the fishermen community. The mutilation of his body too was cited as reason for this not being a death due to drowning.

On Friday, hundreds including union minister and BJP leader  Anantkumar Hegde thronged to join Paresh’s funeral procession:

“A complaint has been filed that five people – Imtiaz, Azad, Amir, Salim and Asif – were involved in Paresh’s murder,” Honnavar BJP president Subraya Nayak said.

The postmortem of the body was conducted in the government hospital in Honnavar, and the reasons behind the death was yet to be ascertained, the Times of India report claims, but the SP of that area dubbed it as a ‘normal death’.

Many were shocked by this incident and people registered their protest on Twitter:

A few called for the organisation of a protest march:

Recently the nation witnessed another brutal murder where a Muslim man was burnt to death over allegations that he committed love jihad with the accused’s sister. This incident resulted in a tremendous outrage, which also included Asaduddin Owaisi questioning PM Modi’s silence over this matter. The same section of commentariat and ‘activists’ has been found to be silent over this issue.

Latest reports suggest that there have been some violent protests in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka over the allegations of murder being covered up by the state police.
