    Slowly Kerala is becoming like Pakistan, God only have to save Kerala from jihadists. These jihadists are not even scared of police, they take law in their hands. Pinrayai govt is indirectly supporting these peaceful jihadists, its a right time for the central govt to make Kerala as union territory or central govt must take the police power from state govt, orelse these jihadists will not kill people like krishnamurthy also fernandes too.

    It's very common in some areas in Kasargod and Malappuram where a particular community women are not allowed go for treatment at male doctors from other community. To stop this, they create well planned 'incidents ' like touching , sexually assaulting, etc ..etc...and finally come in a large group and physically assault doctors.. many similar issues reported. Reports from Badiadka is also a similar story created by a certain group. Let no one should spare!

    These days blackmailing using women has become a trend. Looks like the Doctor was balckmailed by the gang and he was insulted and committed suicide as a result. Best thing is to be very careful about these kind of activities

    I know the doctor very well. He was my childhood dentist and also our family dentist... He is soft spoken, always smiling gentle man.. such a tragedy.. :( His father was a general practitioner and his clinic was next to the dental clinic... He wasn't practicing for money, it was selfless service... Infact many doctors in Badiyadka, Nirchal etc areas in Kasaragod are there to serve people and while doing that they charge nominal fee. Rest in peace doctor... You will be missed and remembered.

    Does not look like suicide. Could be murder. There's obviously something amiss.

    Rita, I believe you are a nurse or health care professional....I read a research paper ...there is a particular injection given before extraction of tooth ...cause in very rare cases 'ILLUSION' with female patients that she is molested...Again it just 'ILLUSION' not 'REAL'... Same thing might have happened with this poor dentist... In India molestation and Rape DEFINITIONS are loosely interpreted...unlike in west... ...Tak...Takk...

    Langooji USA,what you say is right.Am Nurse.about giving injections at Dentists is also sure for removing or to clean because it is painful.Nowadays many try abnormal methods to get money.May this was the one.Naturally people who dont fall under these tricks are feel humiliated.and must have ended life.God may give his soul rest in Peace.Why should relatives arrive and tell this?Woman self can tell.Where is the proof of their tale telling?Simply these days money for this money for that.Better live without complain silently than these illusions.Other side immediately people doubt alsowe cant put hand inside their chest and say wo is what.

    It's not honeytrap or any other nonsense. Dr. was very famous in Badiadka and surroundings. Recently clinics of other doctors was started but they weren't getting any business coz of Dr Krishnamurthy . So there is a news that few people have played dirty business in this
