In a shocking and distressing incident, an Indian Army Jawan named Shine Kumar was captured and brutally assaulted by members of the banned organization Popular Front of India (PFI) in Kerala’s Kollam district. The incident unfolded on Sunday, September 24, when approximately six individuals abducted the Army Jawan and took him to a forest near his residence in Kadakkal.
According to reports, Shine Kumar was subjected to physical violence and inhuman treatment after being taken into captivity. He was forcibly taken to a rubber forest in close proximity to his home, where he was immobilized with his hands tied. During this horrific ordeal, the perpetrators used paint to brandish the letters “PFI” on his back.
The motive behind this shocking attack remains unclear at this time.
A video capturing the distressing scene of the Indian Army Jawan with “PFI” written in green paint on his back has circulated widely on social media. In the video, it is evident that the Jawan’s shirt has been torn from the back, exposing the alarming message. The video has garnered significant attention and is spreading rapidly across social media platforms.
In response to this grave incident, a police complaint has been registered, with Shine Kumar providing his account of the harrowing experience. However, as of now, there have been no reports of arrests in connection with this case.
It is important to note that the Popular Front of India (PFI) was previously banned by the Indian Government due to its alleged involvement in unlawful activities. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) have conducted extensive operations against this banned outfit in their efforts to curb its activities.
The incident has raised concerns about the safety and security of military personnel in the region and highlights the need for swift action to bring the perpetrators to justice. Investigations into the motive behind this shocking attack are ongoing.
