Meanwhile JP Terry, a resident of Sathankulam who has been constantly voicing out against the murder of the duo in Facebook, has remembered Fenix and his kind heart at this time through one of his Facebook post. Fenix, a 31 year old youth was all set to get married in two months and was the only son in the family. He who tried to rescue his father from getting beaten up by the Police officers of Sathankulam, became prey to their sadistic, psychotic behaviour during the wee hours of 19th June.
The Police officers tortured them with lathis and beaten them black and blue after stripping their clothes off. Fenix’s elder sister Perisis, after seeing the bodies on the night June 24, has said “Munnadiyum Pinnadiyum onnume illa” (There was nothing left on the front and rear of the bodies) to the reporters in Tuticorin. This crime committed by the police officials grabbed nationwide attention and head constable Revathi stepped forward to be a witness against her colleagues.
Now, recounting how Fenix behaved with the people of his town, JP Terry said that helped the society and is still protesting for justice even after his death. “Village people and financially oppressed people of our neighbourhood would visit Fenix’s cell phone shop to recharge and to buy new cell phones. The way he provided cell phones to poor people with limited monthly due amount and without interest made them to visit his shop. He wouldn’t discriminate people according to their Caste and religion while helping.”
“He never forced people to pay their due amount when they couldn’t. He would ask them to pay only when they able to pay it. As he studied Master of Social work, he lived by helping the society with what he had. Even after leaving the earth, he is still protesting to make sure that the injustice happened to him, should never occur to another human being” read JP Terry’s post.
