It was on August 10th 2019 when Krishna Manjhi’s family were told that their son had been killed in a mob lynching. Villagers/relatives and his even went to identify the body to confirm it was him. So imagine the families shock when he returned home alive and well!
The villagers and family refused to go near him or speak to him as they thought he was a ghost! Even worse for Krishna was the fact he had been described as a child abductor and 23 men have been jailed for his murder!! Indian Police Are The Best 😂
Krishna explained to his village and family that he had one to Chennai in search of livelihood without letting anyone know of him.
While the surprise return of the “deceased” has brought happiness to his grieving poor family.The incident has raised a big question mark over the efficiency of police investigations. Krishan was declared missing at the same time as a man had been allegedly lynched, on suspicion of being child abductor, in Bihar’s Patna district,
Krishna Manjhi’s wife said, “I wasn’t able to identify his body…The villagers confirmed the body was of my husband as he was wearing similar clothes.” Police said Manjhi’s family had identified the body.
Though, she also added “The moment I was called to identify the body at the hospital mortuary, the body had completely decomposed and was beyond recognition. But I identified it as my husband’s under police pressures,” Majhi’s wife, Ruby Devi, told the media on Saturday.
The police later recovered a body, It was then sent for the autopsy at a local hospital, but the victim’s face was so disfigured that no one could identify it.
Later, police said they had been able to identify the body as that of missing Krishna Manjhi, 32, on the basis of tattoos on his hands and handed it over to his family, who later cremated the body.
The tattoos were said to match a child abductor. So is Krishna the child abductor??
Police also arrested 23 suspects in the connection with the “lynching” of the man and sent them to jail.
Subsequently, the police closed the case. Things took a curious turn on Friday evening when the man presumed to have been killed by a lynch mob suddenly emerged at his home.
“We have intimated the matter to the senior officials and are reopening the case to reinvestigate it afresh,” a local senior police official Samrat Deepak told the media on Saturday.
