Udupi, Aug 07, 2018: Udupi Police have arrested two persons said to be accomplices of underworld don Bannanje Raja on the charges of making threatening calls to a builder. The arrested are Dhanaraj Malpe and Ullas, both residents of Katapady.
The arrests were made following a complaint lodged by Prabhaker Poojary, Proprietor of Classic Builders.
Sources said Prabhaker Poojary used to get phone calls by a person asking him to meet the latter at a particular place. But every time the stranger used to give a slip. On Monday, the man again called Prabhaker and asked him to come near Malpe beach. Prabhaker immediately informed the Malpe police who kept a close watch.
Soon a person introducing himself as Vicky Poojary told Prabhaker that he made money in the name of Bannanje Raja and asked Prabhaker to part a share of his earnings. He even threatened murder if his demand was not conceded. Malpe Police who swung into action arrested two persons. Investigations are in progress.
