Mysuru: It’s been one week since a youth from Periyapatna met his watery grave in far away Malaysia. The parents are still waiting for their son’s body.

Sumanth 21 years and son of Shobha was a resident of Pushpa convent road in Periyapatna town.

Sumanth who was working in Malaysia had gone out to a beach with his friends on December 14, when he allegedly met his tragic end. After three days of continuous search, the body was retrieved on December 17. It’s kept in a mortuary still, as the relatives back home wait for the mortal remains.

Sumanth who was a diploma holder had landed a job through a tourist agent identified as Manish Patil in April 2019. He was promised a job in oil tanker company, but was forced into sand mafia, alleged his relative and former councillor Jayaswamy.

Sumanth who had to endure during his stay in Malaysia was in constant touch with his mother, narrating the ordeal in the foreign country. However he went incommunicado since December 14.

Jayaswamy who suspects that Sumanth may have been murdered alleged that “Ever since the news of his death reached us, we have been in constant touch with Patil, but he is not providing convincing answers. We will be launching a legal battle against him in the future”.

Mysuru- Kodagu MP Prathap Simha also called on the Sumanth’s parents and promised to make arrangements to bring the body, but the wait continues still, said Jayaswamy.
