Tiruvannamalai: The police resorted to lathi charge and burst teargas shells to disperse a mob in Perumanam village, which remained tense since Monday night following a quarrel among youths of two villages. A youth who sustained injuries after falling into a well while being chased by the rival gang, succumbed to injuries in hospital. Two Sub-Inspectors sustained injuries in stone-throwing.
Villagers of Perumanam held captive a youth of neighbouring Devanur village. When the police tried to rescue him, the angry villagers pelted the force with stones.
According to police, Arunkumar (25), Gunasekaran (23) and Parisithu (22) of Devanur village, all in an inebriated condition, came to Kolappapattu village to settle scores with a relative of Parisithu on Monday night.
When Selvakumar (28) and Ezhilarasan (21) of Perumanam village questioned them, they thrashed and chased them through fields. Selvakumar and Arunkumar fell into a farm well. Ezhilarasan managed to escape and informed the villagers of Perumanam who rushed to the spot and rescued Selvakumar and Arunkumar. They rushed Selvakumar, who had sustained severe injuries, to Tiruvannamalai GH and locked up Arunkumar in the village panchayat building at Perumanam. Selvakumar died in hospital. About 200 police personnel, including four DSPs, have been stationed in the village. IG (North Zone) C. Sylendra Babu visited the village on Tuesday. The three persons responsible for Selvakumar's death have been arrested. Police have filed another case against 20 villagers of Perumanam for resorting to violence.
