Dalit Youth Nadaraj Murder

    Murder of Natraj and Negligence of Pramathi Police Station Officials in Karur


    Natraj (30) s/o Raman, resident of Nedungur Kasba village, Aravakurichi taluk, Karur district, belongs to Dalit Arunthathiyar community. His wife name is Indumathi aged 22 and his daughter name is Kanishka (10 month old). He was working in Karudapalayam Aryan Tex Power Loom Company. On 23/06/2014 around 7.45 pm, he left the house for night shift job in the company in his TVS motor bike. On the way his bike collided with the bi-cycle belongs to one Manoharan alias Muniyan, resident of Vaalnayakkanpalayam, belonging to Dalit Paraiya community. On noticing this Prabhakaran S/o Manoharan and Manoharan’s son-in-law Senthil Kumar, belonging to Caste Hindu Mathari community instigated a brawl and brutally assaulted Natraj. Natraj sustained serious injuries and fell unconscious. Even after this brutal attack, Prabhakaran boastfully went to Natraj’s house and informed his wife Indhumathi that he and his brother-in-law Senthil Kumar assaulted Natraj as he dashed with Manoharan (father of Prabhakaran) who was riding in a bi-cycle and asked Rs. 5000 from Indumathi as a compensation for the accident. On noticing that Prabhakaran causing ruckus with Indumathi infront of her house, Natraj relatives namely Prakash, Senthil, Arulnathan, Peelantharan and Sivasubramani came to her rescue. Then Indumathi along with their relatives went to the place of incident and witnessed Natraj heavily bleeding over the nose and ear, and his head swelled badly. Natraj asked them to take to the house. Noticing the grievous wounds, they took him to the Pramathi Government Hospital. The doctors said that they can’t treat him in the hospital considering the grievous injuries and advised them to take to the Karur Apollo Hospital. Hence they admitted him in the Karur Apollo Hospital.


    On 24/06/2014, The Pramathi Police Station officials visited the hospital and got a statement from Natraj’s wife Indumathi. The police failed to read out the statement to her. As Natraj’s family could not bear the expenses for this costly medical treatment, they shifted Natraj to the Madurai Government Hospital on 28/06/2014. On 30/06/2014, Natraj who remained speechless since 24th June 2014, succumbed to the injuries and died.


    While the Natraj family members were trying to save the life of Natraj, the perpetrators have not stopped the intimidations with the relatives of the family. The Pramathi Police officials visited the Karur Hospital on 24/06/2014, to get a statement from Indumathi. But the police was negligent to register the case and were found to be biased in favour of the perpetrators. On 25/06/2014, Natraj relatives namely Prakash and others visited the Pramathi Police Station to lodge a complaint. When Prakash narrated the incident, Pramathi Sub Inspector Mrs. Koushar Nisha refused to register the statement and verbally abused them, saying you sons of prostitutes! why you are telling lie that he was brutally assaulted. She claimed that he sustained the injuries due to the accident. She was negligent to register a case regarding this atrocity. On 26/06/2014, while Prakash, Senthil, Arulnathan and Peelanthran were sitting in the Village temple, Prabhakaran and Senthil abused for giving a complaint against them, saying that you Sakkili Prostitutes! How dare you lodge a complaint against us? They boastfully claimed that they only assaulted Natraj and now that Sakkili son of prostitute can’t even walk due to our attack. They threatened them saying, if you Sakkilis again lodge a complaint against us, we will kill and bury you Sakkilis. They arrogantly said that they can’t do anything against them. On 27/06/2014, Dalits of Nedungur village and relatives of Natraj went to the police station and lodged a complaint in the Pramathi police station regarding this brutal atrocity. Even then Pramathi Police Station failed to register the complaint. After the death of Natraj on 30/06/2014, family members of Natraj staged a road blockade with the dead body. Only after this protest, on 01/07/2014, the Pramathi Police station officials registered the FIR against the perpetrators under FIR No. 85/2014 u/s 294(b), 506(i) r/w 3(1)(r), 3(1)(s) and 3(2)(va) of SC/ST PoA Amendment Ordinance 2014 and arrested both the perpetrators Prabhakaran and Senthil Kumar.


    Before this brutal murder of Natraj, Prabhakaran had enimity with him. During the month of December Natraj asked Prabhakaran to paint his house for some agreed money within stipulated days. But Prabhakaran defaulted and took more days to complete the painting work. Hence Natraj paid him reducing Rs.1000 from the agreed amount as a penalty for the delay. Since then Prabhakaran was envious with Natraj.
