In a recent incident in Kerala, an Indian Army soldier, Shine Kumar, along with his friend, has been taken into custody for allegedly providing false information about an attack on him, during which the letters “PFI” were painted on his back. The incident took place in Kadakkal town of Kollam district on Sunday night, and the police initiated an investigation based on the soldier’s complaint.
According to a senior police officer, no arrests have been made yet, and the statements of Shine Kumar and his friend are currently being recorded. The officer stated, “Further action would be taken after verifying the contents of their statements.”
The soldier’s friend, in his statement to the media, claimed that Kumar’s motive for this false statement was to gain fame. He explained the details of the alleged incident, saying that Kumar instructed him to write ‘PFI’ on his back and beat him up. The friend admitted to being drunk during the incident and initially wrote ‘DFI,’ but Kumar insisted on ‘PFI.’ He further revealed, “Then he asked me to drag him on the ground and lay down, but I could not in my intoxicated state. So he asked me to tape his mouth and hands and then to leave. So I did that.”
The police recovered the green paint, brush, and tape allegedly used in the incident from the friend’s home. The investigation is ongoing to ascertain the reasons behind Kumar’s false statement and the circumstances surrounding this bizarre incident.
It’s important to note that “PFI” is commonly associated with the banned Islamic outfit Popular Front of India.
