Tuticorin sources added that a fresh violence erupted at the site of anti-Sterlite protest in Tuticorin on Wednesday, a video has emerged showing inhuman reaction of the police as a young man lay dying on the ground. Media report stated that in the video, 22 year old Kaliappan can be seen lying on the ground with policemen surrounding him. As he moves his head a little, one of the policemen prods him with a stick and says, “Stop acting”. Kaliappan was among the hundreds protesting against a Sterlite plant at Tamilnadu's Tuticorin. He died of his gunshot wounds soon after.
Meanwhile he was declared dead when he was brought to the government hospital in Thoothukudi. Furthermore following Kaliappan’s death, the toll in the unfortunate and avoidable tragedy has risen to 12. Earlier on Wednesday, the Tamil Nadu government ordered suspension of internet services in Tuticorin and adjoining districts of Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari for five days to prevent spread of rumors through social media and help bring public tranquility.
Accordingly the killings of protesters have evoked a sharp response from
the opposition with MDMK founder likening it to Jallianwala Bagh massacre and
currently the protesters are demanding that Sterlite's copper smelting plant be
shut down as it is polluting the air and water of the region.
Migrants figures shown a negative growth of 11.6% from Kerala Accordingly a new study says factors like the declining population in the 19-25 age groups and stagnant wages in the Gulf countries could be responsible for migration from Kerala declining 11% between 2013 and 2018.
