SI climbs tree to bring down rotten body

Erumeli: A sub-inspector climbed a tree when Rs 5,000 was sought to bring down the decaying body of an unidentified man who hung himself in the forest. The man was found hanging in Erumeli Kanakappalam forest on Wednesday afternoon. Police and locals in dozens turned up at the site.

When the police requested help from locals to get it down, none came forward because of the stench. One person stepped up, but asked for Rs 5,000 for the service. That was when SI EG Vidyadharan removed his shoes and climbed the 40 inch thick tree by himself. He climbed 15 feet, untied the cloth used as noose and brought down the body slowly. Once on ground, he inspected it.

The body was then tied with cords and taken to the road by the SI and CI M Dileep Khan, aided by a local resident. The body, found on a plantation off Erumeli-Vechuchira road, was two days old and clothed in dhoti and shirt.
