The Jarawa tribe living in Andaman were in isolation from modern society till 1998 and even now they reside in a 800 square kilometer reserved jungle. The area is off limits for tourists and other civilians. The tribe follows their own rules which are not affected by India’s rules and regulations. But for the first time since they were discovered, a Jarawa tribesman might get arrested for killing a 5 month old child to maintain sanctity of the tribe.

According to local tribal welfare officer M Janagi Savuriyammal, the baby was brought in for check up after birth. It had lighter skin tone which suggested it belonged to a non-Jarawa father. The baby was later found in sand. Two witnesses said that a Jarawa tribesman called Tatehane was seen with a stranger who then went inside the baby’s mother’s house. Police have arrested the man seen with Tatehane and the alleged rapist of the Jarawa man. Tatehane is not arrested yet but might face jail time soon. Police are asking for Tribal Welfare department’s guidance. If he gets arrested, it would be the first time a Jarawa tribesman gets convicted under Indian penal code.
