Confusion over attack on Masjid Moilar  by gang of assailants

 The victim has been identified as Muneer Ahmed Saqafi. It is learnt, the assailants who came by two bikes  waylaid the Moilar and attacked him with iron rods  near the government school at Mudungarakatte.

The Moilar however claimed that he was attacked in a case of mistaken identity. Meanwhile, locals who witnessed the assault  rushed to the Konaje police to file a complaint. Some even stated that they saw the attackers near the police station.

The local residents  made a vehement demand for the arrest of the  accused and even alleged that the inspector Sudhaker  was trying to shield the Accused.

It has been gathered that the Konaje police later arrested one of the accused identified as Prashanth.

A case of mistaken identity? What has been learnt as of now is that the attackers actually intended to target a teacher of a Madarasa at Mudungarukatte who was reportedly sexually harassing a  lady member of the local panchayat but  attacked Muneer   by mistaking him for the teacher.
Though Muneer filed a complaint against six persons who attacked him, the lady member of the Panchayat  lodged a complaint against Muneer alleging that it was he who had sexually harassed her.

Konaje police have registered  both the complaints and are investigating the case.

In another development, ZP member Santosh Kumar Rai Boliyar and social activist SK Hazar of Mudipu participated in a reconciliatory meeting at the Konaje station  and finally  a compromise was reached upon. As per the compromise both the parties need to settle the court case.
