After the orgy of murder and forcible conversions at Arikkod, people realized that no amount of bravery was enough and the exodus of refugees started. Karat Moideen Kutty Haji denied his role in the murder and blamed 3 others Payanadan Mayan, Imbichi Mammed Kutti and Ibrayan Kutti. It was Payanadan Mayan, the murderer of Attapurath Namboodiri, who shot the Nilgiri S.I. near Edakkara on 3rd January 1922. He later surrendered at Pandikkad. The rebellion spread to Urangattiri amsam and houses like Kizhakampad, Naduvathedam were looted.
The Trikkallur temple lying in the Urangattiri amsam of Ernad taluk was damaged as was the idol and the temple burnt.
