An NRI (non-resident Indian) was beaten to death after being kidnapped in the Indian state of Kerala. He was forced to return from Kerala, the New Indian Express reported.

The victim is identified as Aboobacker Siddik of village Mugu in Kumbla. The place of occurrence falls under Kasargod police station.

The police have taken into custody two men, as the police suspect some financial dealing reason behind the murder.

“Siddik might have died of a heart attack after he was severely beaten. There are blue welts on the soles of his feet and buttocks from caning. There are no other wounds on his body.”

The gang involved in the killing forced the victim come from Saudi Arabia, as the culprits said to have kidnapped Siddik’s brother Anwar and a relative Ansar from Paivalike village. The gang members used the kidnapped people to mount pressure on Siddik to come from Saudi Arabia.

Kasaragod DySP suspected financial dealings behind the killing.

“Siddik might have died of a heart attack after he was severely beaten. There are blue welts on the soles of his feet and buttocks from caning. There are no other wounds on his body,” the Dy SP Balakrishnan was quoted as saying in the report.

Police are investigating into the mater.
