Death of child: woman held

Special Correspondent

KANNUR: An Adivasi woman was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the death of a child due to poisoning at the Adivasi rehabilitation block at the erstwhile Aralam Farm.

The Iritty police arrested P. Radha, 50, in connection with the death of Pramisha, 3, on June 25. The Adivasi child, her mother, Mini; and another woman showed symptoms of food poisoning after they had eaten food from Radha's house. While the child had died, the women had been admitted to hospital.

The police said Radha had mixed rodenticide in the boiled tapioca she had prepared for the women, including Mini, working on her land. Mini had taken the leftover of the food to her house and gave it to the child. They were rushed to the government hospital at Thalassery where the child died.

According to the police, Radha mixed the poison in the food so that she could accuse an Adivasi man, Kunkan, with whom she had some dispute.
