Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (JD)

Udupi, Sep 27: “One person has been arrested in the recent extortion case which occurred in Manipal, Udupi area, in the early morning hours on September 19,” said Udupi superintendent of police (SP) Vishnuvardhan.

Addressing media, he said, “Early in the morning on September 19, two unidentified persons had threatened public and robbed some individuals in Manipal and Udupi. Four cases were registered within a day where the robberies where conducted in the same manner.”

A team of police personnel led by SP Vishnuvardhan and circle inspector Manjunath and Manipal sub-inspector Manjunath M Gowda identified Mohhamed Ashik as the offender and arrested him. The SP said, “Ashik is a resident of Mallar area at Kaup. He with his another friend used to threaten people on less populated roads and steal cash and other valuable from them. Another person is yet to be traced.

“One bike, screw driver, knife and stolen mobile phone and a stolen Bullet bike has been confiscated from Ashik. The bullet bike was stolen from RT Nagar under Bengaluru police station limits. Mohammed Ashik was the leader of ‘Team Garud’ which used to rob people and threaten the public.

“In another incident which took place in Mallar village of Kaup taluk, Mohammed Ashik with his four other friends had attempted to kill a person named Abdul Sattar. In the incident, the five offenders had injured the relatives of Abdul Sattar and even attempted to kill them. The gang included Mohammed Ashik (19), Mohammed Asif (30), Misva (22), Ijajz Ahmed (19), and Dawood Ibrahim (26). Except Ashik, the other four were arrested by Kaup police inspector at Udyavar junction. Two cars, knife, and talwar worth Rs 3,01,700 were confiscated. They were produced at court and are under judicial custody for 15 days.

“They had entered the house of Abdul Sattar with a motive to kill him over personal rivalry between them. But Abdul Sattar had escaped,” he said.

The investigation team was led by additional superintendent of police Kumar Chandra and Udupi police inspector Jai Shankar. The investigating team included Manjunath M Gowda, PSI Rajashekhar Vandali, ASI Shailesh, staff members Prasanna, Thoman, Razak, Salman, Adarsh, Sudeep and Udupi circle inspector Manjunath, ASI Gopalaksh, superintendent of police of the CDR, Shivananda, Dinesh and Nitin.

Speaking on tomorrow's bandh call by farmers on September 28 in Udupi, the SP said, “Proper security measures have been taken for Monday. From morning 6 am, every officer will be on the field. Two KSRP teams are arriving and six DAR teams are prepared. We are taking information from the organizers about the protest and rally. Holding protest and rally is not allowed as per norms. Forceful bandh is not allowed.”

    Look at the age of all these misguided youths. Police need to apply more lubricants to the lathis before engaging them for inquiry.

    Lot of comments on unemplyment, less jobs etc. Thus police must give them 'aeroplane job' . Police in pilot position providing' treatment' and these thieves as hostess, with their legs tied to top!

    Langoo Belman ,washington DC,why saab?If they see any Rafale,they will fly with it before you get up.You are asking who gave them training?such rowdies need no training.when they are not gone or not sent to school by parents,roadside robbery itself is a big school.Thatswhy I say Parents are more important in a childs life.Not all jobless ones do road side robbery,kill ,enter anyones house ,if they are have a bit of conscious.Will do any job to come up and survive except robbery.some work during day and learn at night .Maschet doesnt exist in a Godfearing mans hand..I really ask do such people pray five times a day as others?Atleast four or once?
