Tirupur Kumaran remembered

Staff Reporter


He died of injuries in police assault


Tirupur: People from different walks of life paid floral tributes to Tirupur Kumaran, the great revolutionary who fought against the British Colonialism, on his death anniversary here on Sunday.

A host of dignitaries, including Minister for Highways M.P.Saminathan, Mayor K. Selvaraj, Deputy Mayor Senthil Kumar and Corporation councilor P.R.Natarajan, among others, garlanded the statue of Kumaran established at the spot where he suffered injuries at the hands of British police.

Born at Chennimalai near here, Tirupur Kumaran, who is known by the epithet ‘Kodi kaththa Kumaran,’ died of injuries in the police assault while defending the Congress flag during a protest march against British on January 11, 1932.

The kin of various freedom fighters from Tirupur had urged the state government to establish a commemorative arch at the place where Tirupur Kumaran laid his life for the entire country, as a mark of respect to the martyr.
