Mob Justice

DINDIGUL: An 18-year-old boy who tried to hijack a van carrying milk sachets was caught, tied to an electric post and given a sound thrashing by the public here on Sunday. He was later handed over to the local police.

Police said, when the van was parked by the roadside to unload the milk sachets at an Aavin milk vending point early in the morning, Veeramani, son of Mahendran from Adiyanoothu, climbed into the driver’s cabin and tried to start the vehicle.

But his attempt went in vain after Aavin workers and commuters gathered in good number in front of the vehicle. He was then brought out by the angry lot who dragged him to an electric post close by, tied him to it and thrashed him, said police sources.

Dindigul West police got the information, came in and rescued the teenager from public wrath. They are carrying out a probe with Veeramani, quizzing him for details. Police sources alleged that Veeramani was linked with another criminal case of motorcycle theft.
