Mangalore, Oct, 13, 2014: The Vishwa Hindu Parishat and the Bhajrangdal organised a protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office in the city on October 13, Monday demanding the immediate suspension of Kavoor SI Umesh in connection with a case of alleged assault on a Hindu activist.
Speaking on the occasion, Monappa Bhandary, BJP leader demanded the suspension of the SI Umesh within the next 24 hours failing which the Hindu organisations would intensify their stir.
He alleged that the SI who had summoned Charan to the station had assaulted him for no reason and also was accusing Charan of being involved in ganja peddling etc.
He further stated that so far no action has followed against the accused SI though the Police Commissioner had appointed another police officer named Anantha Padmanabha to investigate the case.
Jagadish Shenava, VHP leader in his address, said the Hindu organisations would stage a protest in front of Kavoor police station if action did not follow against the SI. He also demanded that an FIR should be filed against the SI immediately.
The protestors later handed over a memorandum to the Mangalore Police Commissioner.
