Actor Vijay condemned the brutual murder of two innocent kids at Coimbatore by a call taxi driver on Friday.
In a heart-wrenching incident, a 10-year-old girl(Muskan) and her seven-year-old brother(Hrithik) were allegedly kidnapped and thrown into a canal by a driver, identified as Mohana Krishnan alias Raj (23). While the girl’s body was found in the PAP canal in Vavipalayam, near Palladam in Tirupur district, the boy’s body is yet to be found.
According to the police, the driver Mohana Krishnan, had to repay a debt of Rs 2 lakh and hence, kidnapped the children – studying in standard V and III of Coimbatore businessman P Ranjit Kumar Jain for ransom.
During interrogation, Mohana Krishnan, the father of a 11-month-old child, reportedly confessed to having pushed the children into the canal after they started crying.
“He had kidnapped the kids for ransom. But he panicked. Fearing that the police will track him down, he murdered them and threw their bodies into a canal near Pollachi,” a police source said.
Vijay who is currently shooting for ‘Velayudham’ in Udumalapet described the brutal murder of the kids is a barbaric and inhuman incident.
Condemning the killing he said in a statement, “My heart breaks for the two children they were murdered brutually. Killing of innocent is the killing of entire society,and this inhumanely & barbarically manner. The culprit of the inhumane act should be given death sentence.
The incidents of kidnapping and murdering Kids have been increased.The penalty for such crimes should be death. I am not telling this as an actor, but as a representative of lakhs of persons with humanity.
The damages are huge and irrepairable.May God give the parents the strength and courage to bear this huge loss.“
Our thoughts go out to the families, how sick can someone be to commit this type of crime. When is this cycle of violence going to stop?
