Three members of a family and a house help were poisoned in the name of Covid medicine in the Erode district of Tamil Nadu
Three members of a family and a house help were poisoned in the name of Covid medicine in the Erode district of Tamil Nadu, in which three have died while one is critical. According to the information, these poison pills were given by a fake health worker.
The incident is related to a matter of borrowed money. Police investigation has revealed that 43-year-old Kalyanasundaram, a resident of Erode, had lent Rs 15 lakh to 72-year-old Karuppana a few months back. Kalyanasundaram was now asking for his money back, but Karuppana was unable to return the money. Due to the non-receipt of money for several days, Kalyanasundaram conspired to kill Karuppana and his family.
Kalyanasundaram along with a person named Sabari made a plan. Sabri was made an employee of the Health Department and sent to Karuppana`s house, according to the plan. After reaching his house on 26th June, Sabri asked Karuppana whether anyone in the family had a cough, cold etc and later handed over some poison pills to Karuppana on the way. He said that this is a medicine to boost immunity which protects against corona.
After Sabri`s departure, Khakaruppankounder and his wife Mallika, daughter Deepa and domestic help Kuppal consumed the pills. Later, his wife, daughter and house help Kuppal died in the hospital, while Karuppana`s condition is critical.
The police arrested Sabri and Kalyanasundaram and both have been sent to judicial custody for 15 days.
