Shopkeeper assaulted at Vitla; search on for two

Two persons reportedly assaulted a 58-year-old shopkeeper at Vitla as they were angry with the latter’s son who eloped with a girl from another community. The Vitla police said that the two persons came on a motorcycle and assaulted Aboobacker at his shop.

They also ransacked the shop. The two, for whom the police have launched a search, were angry with Aboobacker as his son eloped with a 22-year-old girl from another community a few days ago.

Additional Superintendent of Police C. Vedamurthy said that the 22-year-old girl was reported missing a few days ago. She was found with Aboobacker’s son Sameer. As the girl refused to go with her parents, she was sent to a care centre run by the Department of Women and Child Welfare.
