Bangalore, Aug 9 : After what could be termed as a one-sided and highly biased 'investigation', Karnataka state Women's Commission chief Manjula submitted the report to home minister R Ashok on Wednesday August 8, placing the entire blame and fault on the boys who were partying at the Morning Mist Home Stay, in Padil, Mangalore on July 28 evening.
The assault on the young boys and girls by alleged Hindu Janajagarana Vedike (HJV) activists has received wide and intense criticism from people in India and abroad.
Strangely, instead of finding fault with the perpetrators of the Morning Mist Home Stay attack, Manjula alleged in her report that the boys were under the influence of drugs, and that the police let them off easily without subjecting them to medical tests.
Surprisingly, nowhere in the report was HJV's name mentioned!
Though police, including the ADGP had given clean chit to the boys, the focus will now once again shift on the revellers, if the state government asks for an enquiry against the boys.
As she had said during her press conference in Mangalore last week, Manjula in her report has questioned, "Did the boys who arrange the birthday party try to mislead the girls? Investigation and action is essential."
What is even more shocking, Manjula has even recommended the transfer of the Lokayukta police official whose daughter was one of the victims of the attack, for allowing her to attend the party!
She also took care to recommend action against the owner of Morning Mist Home Stay also.
Speaking to daijiworld.com, a senior and well-known lady social activist in Mangalore , who was shocked to learn about Manjula's report, said "After viewing the entire video clip, if responsible citizens like C Manjula shift the entire blame on the boys and the girls, without a mention of the organization that openly claimed responsibility intitially and later denied on realizing the wide coverage and possible impact of the incident, it would be a dangerous development for humanity, as an open truth is being hidden with fabricated facts."
