Mangalore, Jul 3: In what could perhaps be called the first 'casualty' after the ban on tinted windows in cars, an astrologer was caught red-handed with a young girl and handed over to the police by the public.

The incident occured near Kankanady railway station in an isolated lane.

The astrologer, identified as Prakash, aged 60, was caught with the 19-year-old girl in his car. The girl is said to be a college student.

The car was found parked in an isolated lane by three or four passerby, who grew suspicious and peeped into the car. To their surprise they found Prakash and the girl in a compromising position inside and pulled them out before locking the car.

It is said that in a bid to escape, Prakash offered them Rs 50,000 in return for his release, but they refused.

They called the police who arrived at the spot and took the couple and the car into custody. The girl was let off with a warning, while a case was registered against Prakash.

Prakash hails from Vamanjoor, where he runs his astrology office. It is said that he had helped the girl's family out of some problem, and according to sources, had lured the girl in devious ways.

Kankanady rural police are investigating.

    Mr. K A Prabhu, Mangalore / Bangalore, What connection this has with Sonia Gandhi and let me know what Italian policy did she bring to India. Being in India she is living in the mids of Indian like Indians but not like Italian. Please comment like an educated person not like an uneducated. For no reason you linking this matter to politics or congress... look at your own party now in karnataka. How Shameful BJP is... Congress is always better in all aspects than BJP. Only intelligent person will realise this not uneducated like you.

    Our people are fond of Italain make so many things.I.e.,Italian,floor tiles,sanitary ware,pipes,fittings,paint,wall papers,mechinaries in food processing,packanging,autombiles etc,.Even today most of the food processing industies have Italian make mechinaries which are most sought after by the entreprnuers.In our younger days "made in Italy" was so popular that even an Italian pen was worth to show to fellow students.
    After Sonia Gandhi took over as President of Congress party this 'Italian'word assumed some twisted meaning.

    Mr. Nagesh Nayak, I indeed take all your comments in a humorous sense. Many a time I laugh myself reading your views on any subject. One thing I noted, all your comments have one favorite word - Italian - , I think you are so fond of this country. Anyway, keep writing, I think many like me enjoy reading them.

    This girl gone willingly not forced She is grown up girl parents should be aware of their children. Why we should react on this act let the parents and the old man handle this with the help of police some people even send their own children to make money also. who don't know about this case may be they make money this way any way when he offer Rs. 50,000 just to close this case then he must be sure he can offer money to girls parents also to close this case.

    In reading the comments, many of our readers are after the scalp of this astrologer. Agreed, it is not ethical to seduce a young girl of his daughter's age and indulge in immoral activities. Why everybody is blaming only the old man. The girl is matured enough to understand the right and wrong and looking at her attire, she must be educated as well. The girl must have joined the astrologer with her own free will and it is a mutual friendship. Hence, the old man alone should not be punished, rather the girl is too equally guilty.

    Some have commented here the punishment to the astrologer to the extent of a death penalty. Guys, grapes are sour if unable possess.

    this is absurd and joke . Astrologer has to file defaming and fault accusation againt police and peaple who caught him . Its his personal affair and nobodys bussiness. If he likes young girl , so be it. If i was in his position , i would hav taught them a proper lesson.

    Why is astrologer alone is exposed? why not the girl? those women who claim equality get up and ask why every time these instances take place only the man is blamed? why not woman. Why is let free with a warning while only the man has been taken to task? Why is his face exposed while not of woman? were they not equal partners in this act?

    At the outset, I would like to Congratulate Mr.Garodi for showing the face of the Astrologer in clear view!! Most of the times it is the face of the Girls that are exposed. The girl who was victimised by this oldie was let go with a warning. I agree she is an adult but such fake Astrologers/Godmen can have any powers to victimise and harass young women:(. Who knows what pressures this young girl had to go through. I would say this Man needs to be beaten black and blue for such deeds. Who knows how many other innocent lives have been affected by this Astrologer's misdeeds. His vehicle says 'Aslesha Puja Phala' and it is very perfect in this case because GOD did send his people to expose this Man! Good Job fellow Mangaloreans!

    Can anyone tell me what wrong this man did??? did he kidnap this girl?? did he rape her..? she has gone with him out of her own free will and she is an adult as per law so why this nonsense? its a case of sour grapes for the likes of Mr Rakesh Shetty and others as they seem not capable of a link up with any woman. Another thing i notice is that many still support BD and RS and sympathise with them inspite of knowing all the nonsense they have been doing. our State is going to the dogs.

    IPC 268(public nuisance) could be applied on anybody in India,,, did anybody is convicted for this offense in entire India so far ,,, who contested this?

    By the by just accademic question for you, since you know some of the sections of IPC...if a woman rapes a man in full public view,,, do you have any sections in IPC to charge her ( like 376 rape by men) for rape???

    Or again you charge her with same IPC 268(Public nuisance)....

    Any legal "Vidhvans" can comment please.....

    Luckily passerby people found him romancing and they rejected his 50,000 Rs. offer.

    If police have found him, they would have demanded 50K more and released him.
