Mangaluru: Anti-CAA violence - Over 650 living near state's border get notices

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jan 19: In connection with the incidents of violence which happened as a result of friction between the protesters and the police at State Bank and Hampankatta areas in the heart of the city during anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protest on December 19, it is learnt that the police have served notices to hundreds of people including students, workers and women living near the Karnataka - Kerala border.

Section 144 was in force when the protest was held. A number of protesters had come together in State Bank area, defying the prohibitory order. When the police were trying to disperse the mob, several had suffered injuries, and two had lost their lives.

As part of the investigation to identify the protesters who violated prohibitory orders and took part in the protest, the police are learnt to have served notices to people who came to the city for various reasons, based on the location of their cellphones identified through mobile towers. These notices were sent by speed post. The notices say that the police have information that on December 19, the recipients of the notice had illegally come together in the city and had taken part in disturbances here. The persons concerned have been asked to report at the city north (Bunder) police station before the prescribed date for questioning.

Thousands of people living around the state's border with Kerala visit the city for different purposes including eduction and business. Even though the notices were served to about 650 persons so far, in course of time, their number might cross a thousand, sources said. It is said that overwhelming majority of people to whom notices have been served are Muslims and they got notices because they reside in the border area of the two states. There has been widespread resentment against the issuance of these notices.

A number of people who received the notices including students and workers appeared in Bunder police station on Saturday. The police obtained their names, cellphone number and signatures, and asked them to appear for investigation without fail if they get notice from the criminal investigtion department in future. These people gave information about the purpose for which they came to the city like business, education, employment etc.

One of the persons from Manjeshwar who visited Bunder police station said that his two children study in the city and that they had come to State Bank at around 2.30 pm on December 19 and had to return by train as there were no buses. He said that even fish vendors and women from the border area who got notices presented themselves in Bunder police station in response to the notice. He said his two sons, one whom is a degree college student and the other studies in PU class, were asked to appear for questioning.

It is learnt that people who came to the city for shopping too got notices. It is being claimed that a few students, who were overwhelmed at the police notice, stopped attending schools and colleges while others have stopped coming to the city. He said that perhaps angered by the fact that he had spoken to the media, the police expressed anger and clicked his photograph.

Abdur Razak from Manjeshwar Mada said that he works as driver of a fish tempo and had come to Bunder to transport fish. As he did not get fish, he offered namaz at the Bunder mosque and returned home. At night, he got information about availability of fish, and he came to Bunder with his son and then took the tempo back with a load of fish, he stated. He said he and his son had come here for their personal issues and had not taken part in illegal things.

When contacted, Bunder police inspector, Govindaraju, said that the police had neither served any notice nor have anyone been questioned. However, the people asserted that they have received notices and charges like section 143 - illegal gathering, 147 - taking part in disturbancesa, 148 - possession of arms illegally, 188 - violating prohibitory orders, 353 - assault, 324 - violence, 427 - damaging public property, 307 - attempt to murder, and 120 - conspiracy and some other sections of Indin Penal Code have been mentioned in the notice.

    Even they are confusing you and you better understand their agenda

    i have nothing issue with CAA but we need clear picture from government mentioning what document they required to show them that iam citizen of India. Let them Central government send official circular. Then we can debate but now no use

    They are Hindus. But the Indian Government never promised directly or indirectly that they will take care. However the minority community of Pakistan and Bangladesh were promised protection by Nehru via an agreement-1951-Liaquit /Nehru agreement.Afghanistan was included because the broder is so porous that it is difficult to seggregate and also since thier numbers are very less.

    This is what I have been referring as 'ignorance' all these days.
    Who has asked your birth certificate or your parents? CAA has nothing to do with you.
    The Prime Minister has already clarified that there is no intention to extend the 'Assam type' NRC across India. Even in Assam, it was carried out on the orders from Supreme Court of India.

    The Supreme court had directed the Assam government to conduct NRC in that State. When the ruling government realized that the majority of people fall under NRC were Hindus then they shifted to bring CAA. And keep in mind this direction by the Supreme court was given in view of Assam state. Just to save the vote bank they brought CAA. Let take for an instant that the government wants to bring people from the said countries and give them citizenship, then there is already an article in the constitution that allows the government to grant citizenship that not new it has always been there. Since independence, many people from around the world have been granted citizenship under this law. So now why bring new amendments which discriminate the view fundamental of the constitution.

    not ignorance!!!! Amit Bai mentioned in many TV interviews that NRC will be implemented all over India and Aadhar card, Voter ID , PAN cards and passport not valid docs to prove your citizenships.
    Amit Bahi's and Mota Bahis statements itself contradicts each other.

    30+ crores of Indians homeless and landless and AMIT SHAH is asking their proof of birth to register in NRC!

    Daily more than 100 babies born on footpath and slums that is the pathetic condition of BJP-New_India - without basic essential facilities denied but demanded proof of origin!!!

    BJP is moving from its core agenda to UNKNOWN direction just to divert its promises like "within 100 days they will bring black money" to India from Swiss bank 2013 promise,
    where are those 100 days and ACHE DIN's.
