In an appalling incident, a man ended his life in Chennai as he could not return to Kerala. The deceased is identified as Vadakara Mudappilavu native T Bineesh (41). As per reports, he killed himself as his journey to Kerala was cancelled on Tuesday night.
Bineesh was found dead at his residence in Chennai on Wednesday morning. It is learnt that someone called Bineesh and said that he should not return as Chennai is a COVID hotspot and he cancelled the journey due to this. Bineesh had already secured a pass to enter Kerala.
“My death is a protest of an expat. People have an assumption that all Malayalis returning to Kerala from outside carrying coronavirus. Both governments are not conducting train services,” these are the statements in the suicide note.
Bineesh’s roommates said that he received a phone call while getting ready to return home and he looked irritated after this. He committed suicide after the bus to Kerala left.
As per reports, he also noted down his mother’s phone number in the suicide note. He applied for travel pass on May 30 through Malayali Association. As he got the pass, a seat was arranged for him on a bus to Malappuram on Tuesday. But the journey was cancelled after receiving a call from his place.
Bineesh’s brother-in-law Sajeevan said that they had arranged quarantine facilities for the former at the house in Vadakara. Bineesh’s wife Praveena and daughter Gowri Krishna were shifted to wife’s house and mother was shifted to a relative’s house before his arrival.
Bineesh has been working in tea stalls in Chennai for three years. However, Seven Wells Police charged a case in connection with the incident.
