Mangaluru, Dec 27, 2019: A five member CID team led by CID SP Rahul Kumar Shahapurwala has arrived in Mangaluru on December 26, Thursday to probe the violence that erupted during the Citizenship Amendment Act protest on December 19 and the subsequent police firing that claimed two lives.
It has been gathered that the CID team will begin its investigation on Friday.
Meanwhile the city police have intensified efforts to identify those involved in violence and arson during the protest based on the video footage. Sources also said many have already gone underground.
Police have also not yet seized the tempo in which stones were reportedly brought to indulge in violence during the protest. It may be recalled here that a tempo with stone filled sacks was seen in one of the video footages released by the police a couple of days ago.
