Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Jan 10 2018: Police who took up investigation into the case of alleged assault attempt on Suratkal Hindu Jagarana Vedike Co-Convenor Bharath Raj are now almost certain that  the HJV leader had  lied regarding the incident  and that  no such incident  has  taken place.

HJVCity Police Commissioner T R Suresh who himself  took up the investigation had taken the complainant  Bharath Raj to the spot where the incident is learnt to have taken place. Bharath in his complaint had stated that  three men who were hiding in a bush had tried to attack him with machetes at around 7.45 pm on Monday and that he had left his vehicle behind and ran into a nearby house to safety. He had also said one of the assailant was wearing a  grey T-Shirt while  another was wearing shirt and pant. However, investigation revealed that the place where the incident took place was pitch dark and there was no possibility of finding out the colour of the dress which anyone was wearing.

Moreover, Bharath Raj had not ran away to the house of his friend Mahendra who was nearby but to another house and claimed that there was no one in Mahendra’s house at that time. However, on enquiry by the police it  came to light that the occupants of the house  were at home that night.

When the Police Commissioner tried to further grill Bharath Raj he has quietly slipped from the spot. Nonetheless the Commissioner has instructed the Suratkal police to further question him and submit a report to the Court. Police are also contemplating action against him for filing a false case.
