Mangaluru, Mar 25, 2018: Responding quickly to Saturday’s alleged moral policing incidence at Tannirbavi, Panambur police have succeeded in nabbing three key suspects.
Sukesh Putran of Baikampady, Varun Suvarna and Deekshith Putran of Tannirbavi are the three youth arrested on Sunday March 25 for their alleged role in an attack on five youngsters including two girls who were returning from a birthday party at Tannirbavi.
The youth were attacked because the assailants suspected the girls to be Hindu and stopped the attack only when they discovered that the girls were Christians. Among the three male victims, one was Hindu and two were Muslims. One of the assaulted boys was hospitalized.
Incidence of moral policing have been increasing in the city in the past few months.
