While Krishnan and his brother Appu were collecting fodder for cattle from a neighbour’s coffee plantation around 2.30 p.m., the boar attacked Krishnan. Appu came under attack when he tried to save his brother. Appu has been admitted to the Government Medical College, Kozhikode, with serious injuries. Though the siblings were rushed to the Community Health Centre, Panamaram, and later to District Hospital at Mananthavady, Krishnan succumbed to his injuries.
