Though the protestors were adamant that they would not move from the place until their demand was met, they  withdrew their protest after the police showed records  of registering FIR against the accused.

It is learnt that a lorry which was transporting rice from Sastan was intercepted by two bike riders on Mudarangady road  on the pretext that the lorry driver had used loud horns to give way for the vehicle. The duo had then reportedly assaulted the driver and cleaner. Three more had joined the assailants later, it is alleged. As a large crowd gathered, one of the accused had reportedly used abusive words further aggravating the situation.

The injured   Bhasker (38) and Shanker (35) have been admitted to  Udupi Government  Hospital.

Udupi’s in-charge SP Vishnuvardhan has said that a special team would be formed to nab the assailants. The police are also considering whether to file complaint against those who picketed the station on Saturday night and tried to create disturbance.

Foolish people. These are non-sense reasons to attack someone. If the diver has honked repeatedly , it is understood he has done it as the path was blocked . But there was no need to attack them
