Bantwal: Gang launches murderous assault - five injured, bike torched

Daijiworld Media Network – Bantwal (SP)

Bantwal, Mar 27: A gang of over 50 youth intercepted four persons, who were returning home after work in a jeep on the night of Tuesday March 25, and attacked the people in the jeep with lethal weapons. Another person who was passing by that road in his bike was pushed away, and his bike was torched.

The incident occurred at Jakimoole near Kambalabettu Dargah in Vittal, reportedly on account of pre-existing enmity.

Five persons, Abdul Razak (27) from Haladinagar in Vittal Mudnoor village, Abdul Basheer (26), Isubu (32) from Nekkare Kambalabettu, Abul Majeed (30) from Kambalabettu Shantinagar, and Abdul Sattar (38) from Kambalabettu Shantinagar, were arrested and produced in the court on Wednesday. Several others like Shaffi, Mannoor, Rafique, Abubakker, Munna and others have also been named in the complaint.

The incident occurred at around 10 pm on March 25 when Lingappa Gowda, Shashi, and Lokesh were returning home in a jeep owned by Karunakar Naytottu. A crowd stopped the jeep at Jakimoole and hit the passengers of the jeep with weapons indiscriminately. Karunakar was hit with iron rod in his head. As an attempt was made to twist and deform his hands and legs, his hand was fractured. The other three, who were assaulted badly, suffered injuries all over their bodies. A person named Ravi, brother of Lokesh, who was passing by in his motor bike, wanted to know what was happening. He was also chased by the assaulters. His bike was damaged and burnt down. The jeep was then pushed to the bank of a rivulet flowing nearby.

After he was informed about the attack by some locals, Vittal station police sub-inspector, Raghavendra T R, rushed to the spot with some colleagues. He found two persons lying on the road in a deserted spot on a mud road leading to Kolambe. He called the ambulance service, but sensing that its arrival would require more time, took the injured people to Vittal community hospital, where first aid was rendered. They were later shifted to a private hospital in Puttur. Two others, who had come under attack and had taken shelter nearby, were admitted into Puttur hospital through ambulance. Ravi, who had escaped the wrath of the crowd by running away, got admitted into the hospital later.

The annual Uroos being organized by Kambalabettu Mohiuddin and Ibrahim Jamaat Committee as well as Uroos Committee at Kambalabettu Sadath Nagara Valiyullahi Dargah Shariff was on since Tuesday. Youth had attended the Uroos in large numbers. As per one account, the people in the jeep were attacked by a group of youth who were participating in the Uroos, as they were angry at the fact that the people in the jeep had spoken to a few women taking part in the Uroos.

After the policemen from Vittal left the spot, the gang returned to the spot, and damaged the jeep, besides torching the motor bike. By the time the police returned once again, the miscreants had made good their escape.

Bantwal deputy superintendent of police, Rashmi Pareddi, circle inspector, Rajashekhar Mistry, Vittal police sub-inspector, Raghavendra T R, and other policemen succeeded in restoring normalcy in the area. As a precautionary measure, two police vehicles have been stationed in the area.

    Police should deal with these type of people severely and teach them a lesson how to behave with others. If they fail, then there is no normal life.

    Mr. Nateshan, Please don't spread lies here. Muzaffarnagar riot started after 2 muslim youths were killed by few jhat youths who accused muslim youths of harassing a realtive of attackers. Surprisingly, there was no complaints made in a Muzaffarnagr Police station on that day stating harassment or Molestation! Please do some research before you comment.

    Whatever may be the reason, a mob taking the law in to their hands are highly condemnable and needed to be dealt with Harsh punsihemnts. Now the whole community will get a bad name because it was done at a religious gathering. It's really sad to see people taking the shield of religion to set their personal scores.

    Guess in India if you attack as a group can escape from the law. Also, even if you caught red handed butchering someone, a Good lawyer can bail you out in no time!
    Unless law gets the upper hand against any crime, people feel fearless in committing crime, either its eve teasing or breaking someones head & the dirty politicians encourage these crimes for their personal benefit

    I think when State goes to Dogs our regions goes to Goons. Slowly and steadily, Mangalore region becomes one of the worst Cities for civilization. Now blame it on ruling Party or Opposition but at the end Mangalore is suffering. This is happening mainly because two reasons, people don’t care for Law & Order and Police Department never allowed to work independently

    Such kind of untoward incidents are the result of MORAL POLICING by the communities which is utmost condemnable by all means.When the police department is weak or derailing its responsibilities such kind of criminal activities takes place.The chain of criminal events are indeed horrible and police need to take strict action to deal with the situation.

    Ismail Bhai, I like this attitude of yours condemning the wrong doing irrespective of religion, caste or sects. We are all living in this region by blaming each other most of the time for everything. At least for the next generation, we can set an example to live peacefully, but possible only when we keep our religion and caste at home and we don’t bring our GODS on the road and don’t wave our hands for freebies based on the reservation and don’t use Government funds for religious fervors
