Tamil Nadu: Cartoonist Bala G arrested for blaming EPS for family suicide

Bala G shames Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami, Tirunelveli police commissioner and the district collector in his recent cartoon.

The crime branch wing of Tamil Nadu Police today arrested a freelance cartoonist Bala G for his caricature, wherein he is criticising the chief minister and district administration for being unable to help a distressed family.

He posted the cartoon on his Facebook page, that has till now garnered about 4,000 likes and 12,000 shares.

Bala’s cartoon shames Chief Minister E Palaniswami, Tirunelveli police commissioner and the district collector for standing by while a child burns to death.

This comes as a direct rebuttal to a recent incident, wherein a daily wage labourer’s family of four set themselves ablaze outside the collector’s office in Tirunelveli.

Isakimuthu and his wife Subbulakshmi were allegedly being harassed by a money lender even after they had paid the dues.

After six trips to the collector’s office with pleas of help and disappointed with police inaction, the hapless couple along with their two daughters- aged 2 and 4 committed suicide.
