KOZHIKODE: Police remain clueless about the culprits involved in a case in which poison was detected in well water at Mukkam in Kozhikode, last week. Meanwhile, police are still awaiting the well-water test results to identify the chemical mixed in the water. The incident in the case was reported on May 19. Following drinking water scarcity in the region, Karassery Panchayat had arranged for the supply and transportation of water from this well to several parts of the Panchayat. The well, which belongs to Abdurahiman Koorambra, is located at Karamoola in Karassery Grama Panchayat.

The incident came into limelight when a change in the colour of well water was noticed. Suspecting a foul play, the distribution of water was stopped which has again led to severe drinking water shortage in the area. Timely detection of poison in the water had averted a major tragedy.
