Mangaluru, Mar 19, 2019: A Puttur man who is employed in Saudi Arabia has been arrested by the Kavoor Police at the Mangaluru International Airport on March 19, Tuesday morning on the charges of creating an audio recording with a call to deport senior Congress leader Janardhana Poojary and eliminate him in an encounter.



The arrested person is Hakim. The controversial audio was circulated on social media soon after Poojary said at an event at Kudroli shrine in December  that  Ram Mandir construction cannot be stopped by anyone and that it was the aspiration of Hindus, Muslims and Christians.

 Former MLA JR Lobo and many other leaders had lodged complaints then seeking action against the person responsible for circulating such an audio.
