COIMBATORE/MADURAI: A 21-year-old youth grievously assaulted by the family of his lover near Pollachi succumbed on Sunday. He was receiving treatment for the past two days at Coimbatore Medical College Hospital (CMCH), said sources.

According to the police, the deceased -- R Gowtham -- from Chinnampalayam near Pollachi was in a relationship with a 13-year-old girl. On Thursday night, Gowtham visited the minor’s house but was spotted by the girl’s mother, who locked the youth inside the house and made the other members of the family to rush to the spot.

“The family members assaulted Gowtham a log and a cricket bat. After he fell unconscious, he was taken to the CMCH, where he died on Sunday,” the police said.

Based on a complaint received, the Pollachi East police registered a case and arrested the girl’s father (50), her uncle (43) and her brother (16) under various sections of IPC. However, murder charges also were invoked after the youth died.
