Speaking to reporters here on March 10, Thursday, P.M.A. Razak of Plama Builders said the builders were thankful to the Police Department for  arresting Bannanje Raja and bringing him to India.

He was also appreciative of the Mangaluru Police Commissioner Chandra Sekhar in tackling criminal elements and controlling crime.

K.C. Naik of Mahabaleshwara Builders said the Department could apprehend Bannanje Raja due to the combined efforts of former IGPs Gopal Hosur and Pratap Reddy, former CCB Inspector Venkatesh Prasanna, present  CCB Inspector Valentine D’Souza and  the former Mangaluru Police Commissioner R Hithendra.
Loknath Shetty of Bharath Builders was  also present.

It may be recalled here that Bannanje Raja was apprehended in Morocco  in August last year and was subsequently brought to India. Presently, investigations are underway into   16 out of the total 44 cases against him.
