Thevar Jayanthi celebrated with grandeur, Youth murdered
Tension gripped Paambuvilunthan village near Kamuthi, where a youth Sivakumar (27), hailing from Virudhunagar district was beaten to death by a mob belonging to another community. Sivakumar and a group of people were proceeding to Pasumpon to pay homage, when they were waylaid by the armed mob. Police rushed to the spot and removed the body to the government hospital at Paramakudi.
Police made tight security arrangements in and around the memorial and in all the Southern districts. More than 5000 police personnel, including Armed Police and Swift Action Force were deployed in the caste-sensitive Ramanathapuram district.
