He hurt none and loved everyone: Basheer's close friend Prabhaker
Mangaluru: "He was a good human being who never hurt anyone. Always helpful to those in need. He battled between life and death for no fault of his and has now left behind all of us...."
These were the heartfelt words that came from Prabhaker, a close friend of Basheer of Akashbhavan who succumbed to the injuries he suffered in a fatal attack of communal hatred that followed soon after the Deepak murder case of Katipalla.
"He had no enmity with anyone. He never hurt anyone and was friendly with everyone irrespective of their caste. When he was battling for life not only his family members even his neighbours had prayed for his early recovery. His family members were on a fast and were praying for the whole four days when he was in hospital, still Basheer could not be saved," said Prabhaker with deep pain.
Prabhaker is totally shaken following the demise of his dear friend with whom he was together for nearly 15 years while both worked abroad. He also happens to be a neighbour of Basheer family in Akashbhavan.
In fact Basheer who was lying in a pool of blood on the night of January 3 was shifted to the hospital by two ambulance drivers named Rohith and Shekhar.
