Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Saturday Nov 19, 2022

Kochi : Protest creativity among Youth Congress workers hits a bizarre high. At a protest held in Kochi, the Youth demonstrators removed shirt off a 5-year-old boy, wrapped litter around him and laid him on the ground at their venue.

The Child Welfare Committee lodged complaint with Ernakulam Central police under the Juvenile Justice Act. The said child prop in this manner was for Youth Congress protest over the incident where a 3-year-old child fell into wayside drain.

Strangely, Youth Congress maintains a defiant stance claiming they were well aware of legal tangles involved,  meaning the abuse was intentional.
