Murder attempt[edit | edit source]

Malayalam actor Baburaj was stabbed on Wednesday, 14 February 2017,at his resort in Adimali of Idukki district following a dispute with the locals. The actor was immediately taken to a hospital and was under medical care at the Ernakulam Rajagiri hospital. Fortunately, there was no damage to internal organs, but he lost a chest muscle. He underwent treatment in Rajagiri Hospital, Ernakulam, and left hospital without any complication. According to reports, Baburaj got into a heated argument with locals when he brought in a few labourers to clean the pond located at his resort, Whitemist Emerald. The pond was one of the main water sources for the neighbours living around the resort and they objected to the cleaning. They contented that they drew water from the pond for their daily use and draining it will cause water shortage during the summer.[7]
