Mangalore, May 27: Relating to a double murder case in the city that occurred in the year 1993, members of the notorious Dandupalya Gang from Bangalore were produced in a city court on Tuesday May 26. The chained hooligans proved why they are dreaded, by exhibiting a violent behaviour, unmindful of the presence of the policemen escorting them, even occasionally being abusive with them. The policemen too seemed to be humbled by the animalistic behaviour of the gang members.
Seven members of the above gang were produced in the city court, in connection with the ongoing hearing in the afternoon on Thursday May 26. The chained criminals were escorted by five policemen of the Urwa police station and a district armed reserve constable.
When the gang members were being taken back to the jail after being produced in the court, a posse of presspersons was present to take their photographs. The gang members went wild on seeing the photographers and threatened the media men by using abusive words and showing aggressive gestures. They even aggressively came forward, as if to attack the media men and the policemen failed to do anything. The policemen seemed to be not in control of the hooligans and instead of controlling the aggressive men of the gang, asked the lensmen not to shoot pictures and ordered them to go back. When the media men stood their ground, unmindful of the wild demeanours of the criminals and firm instructions by the policemen, the gang members became angrier.
They then were seen hurling choicest abuses at the policemen, using unparliamentary words that citizens of the coastal districts loathe using. The policemen apparently were submissive, unable to regulate the gang members, having no guts to ask them to behave.
To avoid the media glare, the police van was taken into the court premises and the goons were picked from there for being taken back to the jail premises thereafter.
