Worker sustains severe injuries

Madikeri: An incident of a coffee estate owner letting loose his dogs to attack a worker for not repaying the money he had taken has been reported at Nellikundi in Balele limits, Virajpet taluk in   Kodagu and the seriously injured worker is undergoing treatment at Gonikoppal Community Health Centre.

While the estate owner has been identified as Kishan, the seriously injured worker has been identified as Harish.

It is reported that Kishan had given a loan of Rs. 4,000 to Harish. As Harish was facing problems, he had failed to return the money, which had  angered Kishan. Harish, who used to work in Kishan’s plantation earlier, had stopped working for Kishan very recently and had started working at his relative’s shop in the village.

On Aug. 29, Kishan, along with his friend Madhu, went to Harish’s workplace and demanded that he repay the loan. When Harish told them that he had no money, the duo dragged Harish out of the shop, shoved him into their jeep and drove away.

They then forced Harish into a cage with Kishan’s three pet dogs in it, which attacked Harish injuring him on head, hands, legs and back. Scared that Harish may end up dead, Kishan and Madhu pulled him out and dropped him near the Gonikoppal Community Health Centre.

Harish was given first aid and was shifted to K.R. Hospital in Mysuru as he had sustained grievous injuries after  the attack.

Harish, who returned home on Saturday, immediately approached Ponnampet Police and narrated the brutality he had suffered at the hands of Kishan and Madhu.
