A two-and-a-half years baby was swept off Alappuzha beach in Kerala while his mother was clicking selfies with three children, including him around 2.30 pm on Sunday. This missing boy, identified as Adhikrishna.
Adhikrishna’s parents, Lakshmanan and Anithamoli, are natives of Palakkad district and their relative – Binu – resides in Alappuzha.
According to the police, Anithamoli arrived at Binu’s house two days back with her two kids and the son of her brother after participating in a wedding function.
Binu drove Anithamoli and the three kids to Alappuzha beach on Sunday. Police stopped them from entering the beach’s main portion as the conditions were rough, so they went to the portion near ESI hospital. Anithamoli began clicking selfies with the kids while Binu went for parking the car. Suddenly, they got caught in rough waves.
Police said Adhikrishna was in the arms of Anithamoli when the waves struck. While he was swept into the sea, Binu managed to pull out the other two kids and Anithamoli, according to a report by The Times of India.
Meanwhile, the district child welfare committee had demanded that a case be registered against people who took the kids to the beach.
