Later speaking to, an inmate of the Girl’s Hostel, Rekha (name changed) said, “From the past two months, we are seeing this man as we study during the night hours for our exams. He comes at 11 pm, parks his auto and strips himself. Later, he jumps around the place and leaves the area at 2 am. We have informed the police regarding this but they told us to note down the number of the auto and give it to them. As he comes in the night, we were not able to note the number of the auto since it is not clearly visible.”

A case has been registered in the Kadri Police Station.


  1. Clearly this guy has some mental issue and he is in need of medical help. I really hope that Police and his family try to help this man recover from this unfortunate situation. Thrashing and violence may intimidate him, but it won’t address his mental issue. Believe it or not, this guy with all of his dysfunctional behavior is less dangerous than real predators out there who target innocent girls.

  2. Agree with Original Pai. Thrashing a mentally ill person is display of instant herogiri for some. However it doesn’t address the real issue. He clearly needs psychological counselling.

  3. This is a pure case of mental illness. Instead of admitting this man to a hospital they thrashed him. Those who thrashed him must be illitrate people.

  4. Either this man is a pervert or he is mentally ill. Sometimes people tend to take law in their own hands. Instead of beating him – he should have been handed over to the Police who in turn would have dealt with the situation suitably
