Kollegal: A man and his wife, Arul Selvam and Lanli, residing in Jakkalli village of Kollegal in Chamarajanagar, have appealed to the Deputy Commissioner (DC) for euthanasia (mercy death) due to distress caused by his mother’s harassment and eviction demands.
Arul and Lanli, who fell in love and married five years ago, have two children. Arul had obtained his mother Moksharani’s consent to construct a house on her land after taking out a loan.
However, recent events have taken a distressing turn as Moksharani asked them to vacate the house and even filed a Police complaint against them. The Police issued a deadline of Sept. 10 for them to leave the premises.
Overwhelmed by this situation, Arul and Lanli have written a letter addressed to the DC, expressing their desire for euthanasia.
In response, Kollegal Rural Sub-Inspector Ganesh, in a statement to Star of Mysore, asserted that no one had approached the Police regarding this matter. Furthermore, he clarified that the Police had never issued any eviction notices. The couple’s plea for mercy death only came to light through media reports, he added.
