Jihadi Attack on Sabarimala Devotee

By HK via Janmabhumi published on December 19, 2016


Perumbadappu (Malappuram): A three member Jihadi gang unleashed brutality on Mithun, son of Ayroor Thottathil Velayudhan, a Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh karyakarta. Mithun was returning home at night, along with his friends after having taken part in the famed festivity of Ayyappan Vilakku in Ayroor. All the three have been nabbed by police. They have been identified as Shafeeq, Abu Salih and Shihab. A grievously injured Mithun has been admitted to Kozhikode Medical College Hospital, with his palm almost having been chopped off and dangling. Hacking to death a Sabarimala bound pilgrim, in order to unleash terror in the district, is suspected to be the prime motive of the Jihadis.


According to eye witnesses, Mithun was sitting in Theertham Kalavedi bus stop along with his friends, after the sacred ritual was over. “The three member Jihadi gang approached him in a friendly manner and made enquiries as to when he was leaving for Sabarimala. When Mithun informed them of the date, the scenario suddenly turned morbid, with the gang charged at him, roaring that he would never leave for Sabarimala. In a jiffy they unsheathed a sword that was hidden beneath their robes. The attack was aimed to severe Mithun’s head. But as he proceeded to thwart the slash, his palm bore the brunt of the attack. With localities swarming to the spot, the marauders made their escape,” said eye witnesses.


Mithun was rushed to a private hospital in Perumbadappu, after which he was taken to Thrissur Medical College Hospital. However, facilities for the surgery required for weaving together the severed veins was available only in Kozhikode Medical College Hospital. 

Mithun’s father Ayroor Thottathil Velayudhan is Sevapramukh of RSS Thekkam Theeyam shakha.
