Spurned lover’s attack: 11-yr-old girl remains in trauma on seeing sister burnt alive
Kakkanad (Ernakulam): 11-year-old Devaki is yet to recover from the shock of seeing her sister being burnt alive before her eyes. She is the sister of Devika, who was set ablaze by her sporned lover Mithun the other day.
Devaki was fondly called Manikutty and her sister was called Paru at home. Devaki is a class 5 student of Ernakulam Girls School. As their mother shouted to Devaki to run out of the house when Mithun arrived, she managed to run outside. The next moment she saw her sister being burnt alive.
By the time the neighbours gathered hearing the cries, Devaki was in a state of shock. The children’s father Shalan had suffered burns during the attempt to save Devika and mother Molly also was in trauma after the incident.
With this, Devaki had to give statement to the police regarding the whole incident. The girl described the event to police sobbing endlessly. Even the police officers could not console the girl who was in tears.
