Those who were present at the time of the occurrence claim that the SI visited the bakery and informed them of a knife attack that had occurred in Kariyad.
He then attacked Kunjumon, his wife Alby, and his daughter Merin with a wooden cane. At that point, neighbours went to the family's help and detained the cop.
