Kalladka stabbing case accused HJV leader escapes from hospital
Bantwal, June 15,2017 : Ratnaker Shetty, President of the Bantwal unit of Hindu Jagarana Vedike who was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Puttur and is the prime accused in the case of stabbing Ibrahim Khaleel at Kalladka on June 13, Tuesday, has escaped from the hospital even when police were keeping guard outside the hospital.
It has been gathered that four police personnel, two each during day and night shifts were deployed to ensure Ratnaker Shety did not escape. Still, the accused managing to escape has given room for much doubt.
Ratnaker Shetty along with his associates who came by a car had attacked Ibrahim Khaleel who was standing in front of the Kalladka Jumma Masjid in the backdrop of an earlier trivial clash between Khaleel and Shetty who had come for the treatment of his son to a private hospital at Kalladka on Tuesday.
Following the incident Khaleel had lodged a murder attempt case against Ratnaker Shetty.
