Dalit man Kuppan was working in Mr. Loganathan Gounder\'s land for a pay of Rs. 250 (twenty days before the incident). But the amount was not given to Kuppan and he had asked him more than 3 times.
On 9.10.2018 Loganathan Gounder and his friend Sivakumar Gounder was consuming alcohol and were sitting in their farm. At that time Kuppan had gone there and asked for his pending wage. But Loganathan had verbally abused and told him to move away from the place. But Kuppan had replied that he had money to drink but not for paying the wages.

Later he got admitted to the hospital and test reports showed that Kuppan\'s intestine was swollen and damaged severely. The next day morning Kuppan\'s died at the government hospital.
