A video of a warden from a home for mentally retarded children in NGO Colony in Nagercoil, Kanyakumari has drawn anger from social activists in the area.

In the video, which is disturbing, he is seen beating a differently abled child brutally. This video has also gone viral on social media.

Activists are now demanding the arreast of the man and immediate sealing of the home.

Inmates of the home who spoke to The Lede’s Kanyakumari reporter alleged that the man would “daily beat us with stones on our head while we were tied with ropes to trees.”

Social activists in Nagercoil are petitioning the District Collector for immediate action against the aggressor and also to close the home itself.

This story will be updated when The Lede receives responses from the district authorities.
