Ashish had tried to frame his mother and son, who were the victims of a moral assault, in a fake case. The complaint was filed against Shamla and her son by a lawyer from Paravur South. The complaint was that Shamla and her son had killed their goat by hitting a car. Inspector A Nisar said the allegation that the goat was hit by a vehicle was not true.
Shamla’s relatives alleged that the false complaint was made as part of an attempt to sabotage the case. According to Shamla, no one who was nearby at the time of the incident was willing to intervene in the matter. According to Shamla, the accused had told her obscene things that should not be said in front of a son.
Shamla and her son Salu, both residents of Ezhukon, were attacked on Monday. When Shamla was on her way to Thiruvananthapuram Medical College for treatment, her vehicle was stopped on the roadside at South Beach.
Defendant Ashish, who reached the spot at this time, smashed the windscreen of the car. Salu got out of the vehicle and was beaten with a stick by the accused. Shamla, who came to stop the violence, was also beaten. Shamla said the accused had demanded a document proving that she was a mother.
“He stopped there to eat because he was hungry, but he could not even eat. His son was taken to the hospital as part of his treatment. Shamla said. “If this is your mother, you will not say so.” Salu said that the accused had said.
Salu said his hand was injured when he tried to stop him from hitting him on the head. He was beaten on his mother’s arm and back. Despite asking for help, the onlookers did not speak. He was later taken to the police station. “The police have directed us to reach the hospital immediately,” Salu said.
Meanwhile, Shamla came to the scene with serious allegations against the police. Shamla said the police were not ready to hear the complaint at first. Police initially asked if he was interested in filing a case. Though the picture of the accused was handed over to the police, the police refused to arrest the accused on the day of the incident. According to Shamla, when she called the next day, the police told her about the accused’s complaint.
