Girl loses life trying to nab coffee thief

Girl loses life trying to nab coffee thief


Bindu, who was alone at home on November 28, saw the woman trying to steal coffee beans spread out for drying. When she tried to catch her, the woman spiked the girl with poisonous needle.

When Bindu's father Rajashekar returned home, he saw his daughter writhing in pain. Immediately, he rushed her to Belur Government Hospital and later to Hassan Government hospital.    

As the father was not satisfied with the treatment extended to Bindu, he shifted her to a nursing home, where she succumbed on Monday night. Rajashekar said Bindu would have survived had the doctors of the Hassan Government Hospital given her good treatment.

Karnataka Coffee Planters Association President H T Mohankumar said they had requested the police department to deploy mobile police force in the coffee growing areas following theft cases last year. But the police did not respond. Bindu would have survived if the police had provided the security, he argued.

The Deputy Commissioner also has refused to renew the gun licence and to issue new licence, he added.   The villagers are yet to recover from the shock. The exact cause of the death would be ascertained after the receipt of post-mortem report.
