 Of the 11 accused, barring the three police personnel who are lodged in Karwar prison and  are presently in hospital owing to illness, the rest eight accused  were produced  before the court.

The bail petition of the accused will be  heard by the court on June 18.

The incident had taken place during the wee hours of May 30 when the vehicle of Husainabba which was transporting cattle was waylaid by the Bajrangdal activists along with the cops. While two others had fled, Husainabba who was caught was allegedly beaten up resulting in this death following which his body was reportedly dumped at Perdoor.

The  case  has been entrusted to the CID.
