Mangaluru: July 12, 2015: The Mangaluru City police have registered 12 cases against unauthorised moneylenders in the past four-five days.



While some cases were registered based on complaints, some were done suo motu , said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Shantharaju on Sunday.

He was presiding over a grievance redressal meeting for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes here. Responding to a suggestion from Dinappa Bangera, to act suo motu against moneylenders, Mr. Shantharaj said they were doing so. Mr. Bangera said many were afraid to come out openly against unauthorised moneylenders.

S.P. Anand, district convener of the Karnataka Dalit Sangharsha Samiti, complained about continuation of a home-based food making unit in a Dalit colony in Urva in the city despite the Mangaluru City Corporation ordering its closure.

The unit uses cashewnut husk as the fuel and was causing air pollution. He said the proprietor of the unit, Uday Kumar, had been threatening complainant Purushottam and issuing death threats.

He had even filed a police case against the complainant.
