Migrant Worker from Assam Found Dead on Kerala Beach

KOZHIKODE: The dead body of a migrant labour hailing from the state of Assam was found on the Koyilandy beach of Kozhikode district of Kerala on Wednesday morning. Initial police investigation revealed the name of the 26 year old to be Dulu Rajbongshi.

As per the report, Dulu Rajbongshi was strangled to death by two of his co- workers. This was the result of a fight that they had on the night before. Post strangling, the duo dumped the body in the sea to ensure the death as well as to hide their actions. The duo has been named as Manoranjan and Lakshmi and they have been taken into custody by the Koyilandy Police. And the body of the deceased has been sent to the Koyilandy Taluk Hospital for the official post-mortem.

The duo are said to be addicted to synthetic drugs, and expected to be under influence when the crime was committed. The problems started as a verbal debate between the trio and soon turned violent, leading to death of the youth.

A large number of youth from the Northeastern region engage themselves in a variety of jobs in different locations of the country. And a vast majority of them hail from the state of Assam and harbour dreams of a better income. They work in a variety of industries ranging from transportation to manufacturing. A large number of youth are also engaged in odd jobs as security personnel and daily wage labourers.

With a lack of ample resources and proper surveillance, these migrant labours often fall victim to different various social problems including drugs and alcohol. And these have often been the cause of fights and several grievous injuries in the past. Another incident happened a few months back in Kannur, which caused the death of an Assamese father and son duo, when something that they picked up from the scrap exploded in their home.
