J Subaskumar : “20-year-old migrant labourer stabbed to death in Moonandipatti village, Madurai”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : A tragic incident unfolded in Moonandipatti village near Austinpatti, where a 20-year-old migrant laborer from Bihar lost his life in a stabbing incident on Tuesday night. The victim has been identified as J Subaskumar, hailing from Supaul district in Bihar. Subaskumar’s friend, B Sannikumar Basvan, also a laborer, sustained injuries and is currently receiving treatment at the Government Rajaji Hospital.

According to the police, the incident occurred around 8 pm when Subaskumar and Sannikumar were walking through the village, near the Government Tuberculosis Hospital. Three individuals on a motorcycle approached them and inquired about Subaskumar. As Subaskumar took out his mobile phone, two of the miscreants dismounted the bike and forcefully snatched his phone. Determined to retrieve his phone, Subaskumar engaged in a struggle with the assailants, resulting in one of them stabbing him in the chest. Tragically, Subaskumar collapsed and succumbed to his injuries on the spot. Sannikumar, who also attempted to apprehend the robbers, sustained stab wounds and was left injured.

Sannikumar was subsequently transferred to the GRH in Madurai for medical care. Meanwhile, the police are diligently reviewing CCTV footage from the area and have formed specialized teams to apprehend the culprits responsible for this heinous crime.

In a heart-wrenching turn of events, Subaskumar’s family made the difficult decision to cremate his body in Madurai instead of transporting it back to Bihar. Prior to the cremation, his family had the opportunity to view his body via a video call, allowing them to bid their final farewell. The Austinpatti police have registered a case under sections 302 and 394 of the IPC, reflecting the seriousness of this incident.

This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the vulnerability faced by migrant laborers who often leave their homes in search of livelihood opportunities. It highlights the importance of ensuring their safety and well-being in the communities they contribute to. The authorities must swiftly bring the culprits to justice and implement measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Subaskumar’s family during this difficult time.
