This incident occurred in Payyannur, Kerala during Krishna Jayanti Fest. Srikant Usha Prabhakaran, who happened to see a boy of 3 years on a huge artificial leaf at a the road show brought this to public notice through social media. The boy was too exhausted after hour long stay in the hot sun. He was keeping his face side-ward to save himself from the challenging sunlight. Srikant called the child help line to get help for the boy. Having no one to make a police complaint there was no filing of any case till now. It has been pointed out that it is a State responsibility to book the culprit. Of late Shobha Yatra related child abuse has been on the rise across Kerala.
