Kasargod, Sep 22,2017 : Kumble police have arrested a youth said to be an aide of underworld don Kali Yogish in connection with the case of barging into the residence of a Mangaluru based bar owner and demanding a cash of Rs one crore at gun point. The bar owner Sridhar Shetty hails from Muttam near Bandyodu.
The arrested person is Yusuf Naushad (25), a resident of Pallam near Permude Samichapada. The incident had taken place in March this year. Yusuf along with a few others had barged into Shetty’s house and demanded cash. When the demand went unheeded the gang had attacked the occupants of the house before fleeing. Police have already arrested a few others in connection with the case.
The arrested Naushad is said to be an accused in a case wherein 85 kg of ganja was seized from a car near Manjeshwar. Though the police had successfully chased the car, Naushad who was in the car had managed to give the cops a slip.
Police said he was an accused even in the case of assaulting and robbing one kg gold from a jeweller of Thrissur.
Further investigations are in progress.
