 However, as the procession neared Suratkal Junction, the police prevented them from  moving ahead resulting in some tension. The protestors sat on dharna on the road and shouted slogans against the local legislator and Suratkal Police Inspector.

Later, DYFI leader Muneer Katipalla who addressed the protestors accused the Suratkal cops of  treating activists of the Samithi as rowdies and alleged that the local inspector Cheluvaraju was backing illegal activities in the area. He also warned of severe protest  across the district if the rowdy sheet opened against the activists was not closed.

 Several leaders including  social activists Vidya Dinker, Natesh Ullal,Aboobakker Bava, Santosh Bajal, Samsuddin and others participated in the protest.

Panambur ACP  Rajendra later met the protestors and accepted memorandum from them.
